Investigation of wing characteristics at a Mach number of 1.53 II : swept wings of taper ratio 0.5

Description: Measured values of lift, drag, and pitching moment at M(sub o) = 1.53 are presented for seven wings varying in sweep angle from 60 degrees sweepforward to 60 degrees sweepback. All wings had a cambered, double-wedge section 5-percent thick and a common taper ratio of 0.5. The experimental results are compared with the predictions of the linear theory.

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.

Full-scale wind-tunnel tests of the longitudinal stability and control characteristics of the XV-1 convertiplane in the autorotating flight range

Description: Force and moments were measured for the XV-1 convertaplane at 75 to 150 knots. Rotor on and off and propeller powered and off configurations were investigated. The characteristics of the V-tab horizontal tail and its downwash field were studied. Lift interference between fixed wing and rotor and possible means of drag reduction were considered.
