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.

Investigation of a thin wing of aspect ratio 4 in the Ames 12-foot pressure wind tunnel. III: the effectiveness of a constant-chord aileron

Description: Report presenting a wind-tunnel investigation at a range of Mach numbers with a constant Reynolds number of a semispan model of a thin, unswept wing of aspect ratio 4 and taper ratio 0.5 with a constant-chord aileron and a modified diamond profile. Results regarding lift and rolling-moment characteristics and aileron effectiveness are provided.

Characteristics throughout the subsonic speed range of a plane wing and of a cambered and twisted wing, both having 45 degrees of sweepback

Description: Report presenting a wind-tunnel investigation of two semispan wing models with 45 degrees of sweepback, an aspect ratio of 5, and a taper ratio of 0.565. One wing had no camber or twist while the other was cambered for a design lift coefficient of 0.4 and twisted to relieve loading at the tip. Results regarding the plane wing, cambered and twisted wing, wing-body combinations, effect of camber and twist, effect of fences, effect of surface roughness, and lift-drag ratio are provided.

Investigation of a thin wing of aspect ratio 4 in the Ames 12-foot pressure wind tunnel 4 : the effect of a constant-chord leading-edge flap at high subsonic speeds

Description: Report presenting wind-tunnel tests of a semispan model of a thin sharp-edged unswept wing of aspect ratio 4 and taper ratio 0.5 equipped with a full-span, constant-chord, leading-edge flap. The effectiveness of the leading-edge flap in improving the lift-drag ratio of the wing was investigated over a range of Mach and Reynolds numbers. Results regarding the lift characteristics, drag characteristics, pitching-moment characteristics, and lift-drag ratio are provided.

Investigation of a Thin Wing of Aspect Ratio 4 in the Ames 12-Foot Pressure Wind Tunnel 5: Static Longitudinal Stability and Control Throughout the Subsonic Speed Range of a Semispan Model of a Supersonic Airplane

Description: Memorandum presenting wind-tunnel tests of a semispan model of a hypothetical supersonic airplane to determine the static longitudinal stability and control characteristics of the airplane throughout the range of subsonic Mach numbers up to 0.95. The model had a long slender fuselage and a wing and horizontal tail of aspect ratio 4 and taper ratio 0.5. Results regarding the force and moment characteristics, wing wake and effective downwash at the horizontal tail, effects of compressibility, and longitudinal characterisitcs with the flaps deflected are provided.

Investigation of a Thin Wing of Aspect Ratio 4 in the Ames 12-Foot Pressure Wind Tunnel. 2: The Effect of Constant-Chord Leading- and Trailing-Edge Flaps on the Low-Speed Characteristics of the Wing

Description: Memorandum presenting wind-tunnel tests of a semispan model of an unswept wing of aspect ratio 4 and a taper ratio of 0.50, equipped with leading- and trailing-edge flaps. The purpose of the tests was to determine the low-speed aerodynamic characteristics of the wing as affected by the separate or combined deflections of a full-span, constant-chord, leading-edge, plain flap and a partial-plan, constant-chord, trailing-edge flap of either the plain or split type. Results regarding the maximum lift characteristics, pitching-moment characteristics, drag coefficients, lift-drag ratio, and effect of Reynolds number and profile modification are provided.
