Flutter Tests of a 1/25-Scale Model of the B-36J/RF-84F Tip-Coupled Airplane Configuration in the Langley 19-Foot Pressure Tunnel
Description: Report discussing tests of a model of a B-36J/RF-84F tip-coupled airplane to evaluate the flutter characteristics where bomber-body freedoms are allowed and to obtain information about the dynamic stability characteristics. The variables studied were the skew angle of the fighter-bomber coupling, the fighter longitudinal position, the fighter and bomber loading, angle of sideslip, degrees of body freedom, and number of fighters. Flutter was primarily found to occur when the fighter roll frequency was near the natural chordwise-bending frequency of the bomber wing.
