The Subsonic Lateral and Longitudinal Static Stability Characteristics Up to Large Angles of Sideslip for a Triangular-Wing Airplane Model Having a Ventral Fin
Description: "Wind-tunnel tests were conducted to determine the effects of a ventral fin on the static characteristics of a triangular-wing airplane model. Data were obtained for angles of sideslip up to 18 degrees at angles of attack of 0, 6, 12, and 18 degrees at Mach numbers from 0.25 to 0.94. The results of the tests indicated that the ventral fin did not produce as much yawing moment per unit of exposed area at any angle of sideslp as the vertical tail" (p. 1).
