. MODl AND D APPARATUS
The 1/8.33-scale powered -model of the XF-12 airplane is shown
mounted on the single support in the Langley 19-foot pressure tunnel
in figure I. A three-view drawing of the model is presented in
figure 2, and a complete description of the model and its c nponents .
are given in rein fereferences .1 and 2. The horizontal and vertical tail..
and after' portion.of the fuselage were replaced by a fuselage tail.
cone during this part of the investigation.
The Langley 19-foot pressure tunnel air-stream rake was
employed to measure dynamic pressure, dowtwash angles, and sidewash
angles." The rake, which had been.previously calibhated through a
known pitch ,and yaw range, consists of six: pitbt-static tubed with
pitch and.. yaw orifices (two each) drilled- in.-the hemispheIrial tips
at 450 to the longitudinal tube axes and 900 "to each 'ther. The
tubes, which are Brlned in vertical plane and are spaced 3, inches
apart (fig. 3), were, connected to a multiple tube manatcuster. IThe
manameter readings were recorded during the tests by means of a camera.
The mechanism of the survey-trut carriage allowed only planes to be
traversed that were perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the
