Description

The report UM No. 1023/1 which presented the results of measurements for a series of trapezoidal wings was the beginning of a series on wings with aspect ratio 1 to 3 and various contours. In report No. 1023/1 the aspect ratio (Lambda = 4/3) remained the same; the tapering was modified. The present report gives the results of the series of elliptic wings. Here the aspect ratio varies from 1 to 2 with the sweepback. The contour is formed by elliptic arcs. The influence of sweepback and contour upon the neutral point is shown.
