Description

Results are presented, in graphical and tabular form, from a wind tunnel investigation of the lift, drag, and pitching moment characteristics of thin, low-aspect-ratio wings in combination with a body at Mach numbers from 0.25 to as high as 1.9. The following are analyzed and compared with existing theoretical results: 1. Effects of aspect ratio on 3-percent-thick triangular wings; 2. Effects of plan form on 3-percent-thick triangular, sweptback, and unswept wings of aspect ratios 2 and 3; 3. Effects of wing thickness on triangular wings of aspect ratio 2; 4. Effects of profile shape on triangular, sweptback, and unswept wings; ... continued below

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).
