Wind-tunnel measurements of the dynamic cross derivative (rolling moment due to yawing velocity and to acceleration in sideslip) of the Douglas D-558-II airplane and its components at supersonic speeds including description of the technique
Description: Report presenting a technique and the results obtained of wind-tunnel forced-oscillation tests on a model of the Douglas D-558-II airplane which was instrumented to obtain the dynamic cross derivative and static derivative. Tests were conducted for a range of Mach numbers and angles of attack. Results regarding sample calculations of the period and damping of the full-scale airplane are provided despite not being conclusive due to the inadequate number of flight conditions investigated.
