Description

From Summary: "This report contains the results of tests of a full-scale semispan horizontal tail plano of a bomber airplane. The effects of fabric distortion on the aerodynamic characteristics of the elevator are determined by comparing the aerodynamic characteristics of a fabric-covered elevator with those of a metal-covered elevator. In addition, the results of cutting holes in the balance seal, the effect of fixing transition, the tab effectiveness both sealed and unsealed, and the section drag of this tail plane are presented."

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
