Theoretical Analyses to Determine Unbalanced Trailing-Edge Controls Having Minimum Hinge Moments Due to Deflection at Supersonic Speeds
Description: Memorandum presenting analyses based on theoretical results of NACA Report 1041 to determine the plan forms of unbalanced trailing-edge flap-type controls with minimum hinge moments due to deflection and requiring minimum work to overcome the hinge moments due to deflection at supersonic speeds. Results of the analyses for longitudinal controls show high-aspect-ratio untapered controls to possess maximum ratios of lift to hinge moment. Results regarding ratios of lift to hinge moment, ratios of lift to deflection work, ratios of rolling moment to hinge moment, and ratios of rolling moment to deflection work are provided.
