  • Content Description: Memorandum presenting force and moment characteristics of configurations employing wings of very low aspect ratio have been determined for Mach numbers of 1.97 and 3.33. The angle-of-attack range was from 0 to 17 degrees for Mach number 1.97 and from 0 to 30 degrees for Mach number 3.33. The results of the investigation indicate that there are distinct aerodynamic advantages to the use of highly swept wings of very low aspect ratio.
