Wind Tunnel Investigation of Control Surface Characteristics: [Part] 12 - Various Cover-Plate Alinements on the NACA 0015 Airfoil With a 30 Percent Chord Flap and Large Sealed Internal Balance
Description: Report presenting force-test measurements in two-dimensional flow made in the 4- by 6-foot vertical tunnel to determine the aerodynamic effects of changing the alignment of the cover plates on a sealed internally balanced flap. Manufacturing imperfections in the alignment of the cover plates with the airfoil contour may have serious effects on the resultant hinge moment of a flap with a sealed internal balance. Results regarding lift, flap hinge moments, pitching moment, and drag are provided.
