Investigation of the effects of twist and camber on the aerodynamic characteristics of a 50 degrees 38 minutes sweptback wing of aspect ratio 2.98 : transonic-bump method
Description: An investigation of two semispan wings swept back 50 degrees 38 minutes was conducted in the Langley high-speed 7- by 10-foot tunnel over a Mach number range of 0.68 to 1.15 by use of the transonic-bump technique. This paper presents the results of the investigation of wing-alone and wing-fuselage configurations of the two wings; one was an untwisted uncambered wing and the other was the same wing but incorporated twist and camber designed to give uniform load at a lift coefficient of 0.25 at a Mach number of 1.10. The semispan wings had their quarter-chord lines swept back 50 degrees 38 minutes, aspect ratios 2.98, taper ratios 0.45, and modified NACA 64A-series airfoil sections tapered in thickness. Lift, pitching moment, drag, and bending moment were obtained for these configurations.
