Flight and wind-tunnel investigation to determine the aileron-vibration characteristics of 1/4-scale wing panels of the Douglas D-558-2 research airplane
Description: Report presenting a flight and wind-tunnel investigation to determine the aerodynamic vibration characteristics of ailerons for the Douglas D-558-2 airplane. Testing was conducted to investigate the possibilities of a single-degree-of-freedom flutter known as aileron "buzz" or aileron compressibility flutter. Results regarding the three types of aileron vibration observed and vibration amplitudes are provided.
