Description

"The effects of elevator deflections from 0 degrees to -20 degrees on the force and moment characteristics of a 1/20-scale model of the Convair F-102 airplane with chordwise fences have been determined at Mach numbers from 0.6 to 1.1 for angles of attack up to 20 degrees in the Langley 8-foot transonic tunnel. The configuration exhibited static longitudinal stability throughout the range tested, although a mild pitch-up tendency was indicated at Mach numbers from 0.85 to 0.95. Elevator pitch effectiveness decreased rapidly between the Mach numbers of 0.9 and 1.0, however, no complete loss or reversal was indicated for all ... 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).
