Wind-tunnel investigation at low speed of a wing swept-back 63 degrees and twisted and cambered for a uniform load at a lift coefficient of 0.5

Description: Report discusses the results of testing to determine the low-speed longitudinal stability characteristics and spanwise distribution of load of a wing model with the leading edge swept back 63 degrees, an aspect ratio of 3.5, and a large amount of twist and camber. The results are compared to tests of a model of an untwisted and uncambered wing of identical plan form. Measurements of force, pressure-distribution, and comparison of theoretical and experimental span loading are described.

Wind Tunnel Investigation at Low Speed of Aerodynamic Characteristics of Army Chemical Corps Model E-112 Bomblets with Span Chord Ratio of 2 - 1

Description: An experimental investigation has been made in the Langley stability tunnel to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of the Army Chemical Corps model E-112 bomblets with span-chord ratio of 2:1. A detailed analysis has not been made; however, the results showed that all the models were spirally unstable and that a large gap between the model tips and end plates tended to reduce the instability.

Wind-tunnel investigation at low speed of effects of sideslip on static longitudinal trim and static lateral stability characteristics of three fighter-type airplane models

Description: Report presenting a wind-tunnel investigation at low speed to determine the effects of sideslip on the static longitudinal trim characteristics of three fighter-type airplane models. The three models consisted of a 45 degree swept-wing model with a horizontal tail geometrically similar to the wing and mounted slightly below the wing, a clipped-delta-wing model with a horizontal tail mounted in a moderately high position, and a 60 degree delta-wing with no horizontal tail. Results regarding static longitudinal stability, variation of pitching-moment coefficient with sideslip, effect of modifications to Model B on static longitudinal stability and variation of pitching-moment coefficient with sideslip, and static lateral stability are presented.

Wind-tunnel investigation at low speed of sideslipping, rolling, yawing, and pitching characteristics for a model of a 45 degree swept-wing fighter-type airplane

Description: Report presenting an investigation in the stability tunnel at low speed to determine the rolling characteristics at combined angles of attack and sideslip for a model of a fighter-type airplane with a 45 degree sweptback wing. Testing was performed with the original vertical tail and a vertical tail with a 27 percent larger exposed area. Results regarding the static longitudinal stability, directional stability, and effect of the different tails are presented.

Wind tunnel investigation at low speed of the aerodynamic characteristics of the Army Chemical Corps model E112 bomblets

Description: Report discussing an experimental investigation to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of the Army Chemical Corps model E112 bomblets. From Summary: "A detailed analysis has not been made; however, the results showed that a gap between model tips and the end plates or increasing the end-plate size for a solid model could result in a spirally stable configuration." A large amount of data collected from testing and photographs of the model are provided.

Wind-tunnel investigation at low speed of the effects of chordwise wing fences and horizontal-tail position on the static longitudinal stability characteristics of an airplane model with a 35 degree sweptback wing

Description: Low-speed tests of a model with a wing swept back 35 degrees at the 0.33-chord line and a horizontal tail located well above the extended wing-chord plane indicated static longitudinal instability at moderate angles of attack for all configurations tested. An investigation therefore was made to determine whether the longitudinal stability could be improved by the use of chordwise wing fences, by lowering the horizontal tail, or by a combination of both. The results of the investigation showed that the longitudinal stability characteristics of the model with slats retracted could be improved at moderate angles of attack by placing chordwise wing fences at a spanwise station of about 73 percent of the wing semispan from the plane of symmetry provided the nose of the fence extended slightly beyond or around the wing leading edge.

Wind-tunnel investigation at low speed of the effects of symmetrical deflection of half-delta tip controls on the damping in roll and yawing moment due to rolling of a triangular-wing model

Description: Report presenting a low-speed investigation in the stability tunnel to determine the effects of symmetrical deflection of half-delta tip controls on the damping in roll and yawing moment due to rolling of a model with triangular wings. Triangular wings have numerous aerodynamic advantages, but it is difficult to obtain adequate longitudinal and lateral control with acceptable control forces when using them. Results regarding the lift characteristics and rolling characteristics are provided.

Wind-Tunnel Investigation at Low Speed of the Pitching Stability Derivatives of a 1/9-Scale Powered Model of the Convair XFY-1 Vertically Rising Airplane, TED No. NACA DE 373

Description: An experimental investigation has been conducted in the Langley stability tunnel at low speed to determine the pitching stability derivatives of a 1/9-scale powered model of the Convair XFY-1 vertically rising airplane. Effects of thrust coefficient, control deflections, and propeller blade angle were investigated. The tests were made through an angle-of-attack range from about -4deg to 29deg, and the thrust coefficient range was from 0 to 0.7. In order to expedite distribution of these data, no analysis of the data has been prepared for this paper.

Wind-Tunnel Investigation at Low Speed of the Rolling Stability Derivatives of a 1/10-Scale Model of the Grumman F9F-9 Airplane, TED No. NACA AD 3109

Description: An experimental investigation has been made in the Langley stability tunnel to determine the low-speed yawing, pitching, and static stability characteristics of a 1/10-scale model of the Grumman F9F-9 airplane. Tests were made to determine the effects of duct-entrance-fairing plugs on the static lateral and longitudinal stability characteristics of the complete model in the clean condition. The remaining tests were concerned with determining tail contributions as well as the effect of duct-entrance-fairing plugs, slats, flaps, and landing gear on the yawing and pitching stability derivatives. These data are presented without analysis in order to expedite distribution.
