Description

"Free-flight tests in the transonic and supersonic speed ranges utilizing rocket-propelled models have been made on two pairs of 1/9-scale Convair YF-102 airplane wings with elevons to investigate the possibility of flutter . These wings had modified 60 deg delta plan forms with the trailing edge swept forward 5 deg. The aspect ratio of two exposed wing panels was 2.19 and the wings had NACA 0004-65 (modified) airfoil sections. The model wings and elevons were dynamic-scale models at sea level of the full-scale wings at 20,000 feet" (p. 1).
