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.
