Lift, drag, and pitching moment of low-aspect-ratio wings at subsonic and supersonic speeds

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; and 5. Effects of camber and twist on triangular wings of aspect ratios 2 and 4.

Low-Speed Wind-Tunnel Investigation of the Drag of a Lockheed F-94C Airplane (A.F. No. 50-956)

Description: The aerodynamic characteristics in pitch of an F-94C airplane, with the primary attention given to its drag characteristics, have been evaluated at low speed in the Ames 40- by 80-foot wind tunnel. The increments of drag due to various surface irregularities, ports, and component parts of the production airplane were determined. Wing-wake surveys were taken to determine the section drag coefficients at midsemispan for the smooth and the production wing. Base-pressure and internal drags of the air-induction system were measured at low inlet-velocity ratios. The characteristics of the airplane in the landing configuration are also included.
