Effect of Reflex Camber on the Aerodynamic Characteristics of a Highly Tapered Moderately Swept-Back Wing at Reynolds Numbers Up to 8,000,000
Description: Report presenting testing at Reynolds numbers up to 8,000,000 to determine the effectiveness of a reflex-cambered mean line in shifting the low-drag range of a sweptback wing without affecting the longitudinal stability. Two models were tested, one with symmetrical airfoil sections and one with a reflex-cambered mean line. Results regarding the effect of camber, roughness, and variation of aerodynamic characteristics with Reynolds number are provided.
