Static lateral stability characteristics of an airplane model having a 47.7 degree sweptback wing of aspect ratio 6 and the contribution of various model components at a Reynolds number of 4.45 x 10(exp 6)

Description: Report presenting an investigation to determine the low-speed yaw characteristics of an airplane model with a 47.7 degree sweptback wing of aspect ratio 6 and to determine lateral stability contributions of various model components and associated mutual interference. The complete airplane model was directionally stable through the yaw-angle range for angles of attack up to 23 degrees.

Low-speed longitudinal and wake air-flow characteristics at a Reynolds number of 5.5 x 10(exp 6) of a circular-arc 52 degrees sweptback wing with a fuselage and a horizontal tail at various vertical positions

Description: Report presenting an investigation in the 19-foot pressure tunnel to determine the effects of a fuselage and a horizontal tail located at various vertical positions on the low-speed longitudinal characteristics of a circular-arc 52 degree sweptback wing. Results regarding the effect of fuselage on longitudinal characteristics of the wing, effect of tail position on stability and tail effectiveness, and air-flow characteristics are provided.

A study of several factors affecting the stability contributed by a horizontal tail at various vertical positions on a sweptback-wing airplane model

Description: Report presenting a study in the 19-foot pressure tunnel to determine the effects of fuselage afterbody shape, split flaps, and variations in the span of the leading-edge flaps on the stability contributed by the horizontal tail to an airplane with the wing swept back 42 degrees.

Summary and analysis of horizontal-tail contribution to longitudinal stability of swept-wing airplanes at low speeds

Description: Report discussing available wind-tunnel data on low-speed horizontal-tail contribution to the static longitudinal stability of high-speed airplane configurations with unswept and sweptback wings. The effects of variations of tail position, wing plan form, airfoil section, trailing-edge flaps, stall-control devices, and ground interference on air-flow characteristics an tail contribution are also described.
