Low-speed pressure-distribution and flow investigation for a large pitch and yaw range of three low-aspect-ratio pointed wings having leading edge swept back 60 degrees and biconvex sections
Description: Report presenting an investigation of pressure distributions and flow characteristics at low speed through a range of yaw and angle of attack through the stall for three small-scale low-aspect-ratio pointed wings with varying degrees of trailing-edge sweep. An effort was made to correlate pressure distributions with the strong conical vortex flow observed. Results regarding chordwise pressure distributions and flow characteristics, section lift characteristics at zero yaw, spanwise-load distributions, centers of pressure at zero yaw, and wing force and moment characteristics are provided.
