An apparatus for varying effective dihedral in flight with application to a study of tolerable dihedral on a conventional fighter airplane

Description: From Summary: "An apparatus for varying effective dihedral in flight by means of servo actuation of the ailerons in response to sideslip angle is described. The results of brief flight tests of the apparatus on a conventional fighter airplane are presented and discussed. The results of an investigation employing the apparatus to determine the tolerable (safe for normal fighter operation) range of effective dihedral on the test airplane are presented."

Analysis of the effects of wing interference on the tail contributions to the rolling derivatives

Description: From Introduction: "This report presents calculations of the angularity of the air stream with respect to the vertical tail for a rolling airplane, the interference effects of the wing being taken into account. A discussion of the factors which enter into the calculations is given and equations for applying the side-wash results to the determination of the tail contributions to the rolling-stability derivatives are included. The results are compared with some available experimental data."
