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.
