Investigation of a Thin Wing of Aspect Ratio 4 in the Ames 12-Foot Pressure Wind Tunnel 1: Characteristics of a Plain Wing
Description: Memorandum presenting wind-tunnel tests of a semispan model of an unswept wing of aspect ratio 4 and taper ratio 0.5 at Mach numbers up to 0.94 to determine its aerodynamic characteristics as influenced by Mach number, Reynolds number, and modification of the basic diamond profile by rounding the ridge. Lift, drag, and pitching-moment data are presented for a range of Reynolds and Mach numbers. The results indicated that no severe static-longitudinal-stability problems up to Mach number 0.94.
