Flight Studies of the Horizontal-Tail Loads Experienced by a Fighter Airplane in Abrupt Maneuvers

Description: Report presenting flight measurements made on a modern pursuit airplane to determine the approximate magnitude of the horizontal tail loads in accelerated flight. Pressures at a few points were used as an index of the tail loads by correlating these pressures with complete pressure-distribution data obtained in the NACA full-scale tunnel.

Experiments on Drag of Revolving Disks, Cylinders and Streamline Rods at High Speeds

Description: Report presenting an experimental investigation concerned primarily with the extension of test data on the drag of revolving disks, cylinders, and streamline rods to high Mach numbers and Reynolds numbers. The tests generally confirm earlier theories and add in some new results. One of the primary findings of interest is that skin friction does not depend on Mach number.

General tank tests on the hydrodynamic characteristics of four flying-boat hull models of differing length-beam ratio

Description: Report presenting the results of general tests on the hydrodynamic characteristics of four related flying-boat hull models of differing length-beam ratio. Five different characteristics were investigated in an effort to gain perspective and determine which characteristics were most important: resistance, porpoising, main forebody spray blister, bow spray in rough water, and yawing stability near hump speeds.
