Measured data pertaining to buffeting at supersonic speeds of the Douglas D-558-II research airplane
Description: Report presenting data obtained from an investigation of the Douglas-D558-II airplane to determine its buffeting characteristics at high lift and supersonic speeds. From Summary: "Buffeting was encountered at normal-force coefficients greater than about 0.7 in the Mach number range from 0.96 to 1.27 but at Mach number of 1.57, a peak normal-force coefficient of 0.80 was attained with no indication of buffeting. The increase in buffet intensity with lift is very gradual at supersonic speed compared with the buffet intensity-lift variation at subsonic Mach numbers."
