Experimental Investigation of the Effects of Sweepback on the Flutter of a Uniform Cantilever Wing With a Variably Located Concentrated Mass
Description: Report presenting data from 95 subsonic flutter tests conducted in the flutter research tunnel on untapered cantilever wings with sweepback angles of 0, 45, and 60 degrees and carrying a single concentrated weight. The primary purpose of the investigation was to present experimental information to be used to evaluate analytical procedures for determining the flutter speed of weighted sweptback wings. The dynamic pressure, flutter velocity, Mach number, natural and flutter frequencies, and phase-angle relationships of the stresses for the natural and flutter frequencies are presented.
