An Investigation of Longitudinal Control Characteristics of a Wing-Tip Control Surface on a Sweptback Wing at Transonic Speeds by the NACA Wing-Flow Method
Description: Report presenting an investigation of the longitudinal control effectiveness of a full-chord wing-tip control surface on a wing with 35 degrees of sweepback, 12 percent thickness perpendicular to the quarter-chord line, an aspect ratio of 3.01, and a taper ratio of 0.605 at a range of Mach numbers. Wing-tip control was only 1/6 as effect in producing pitching moment at subsonic speeds as a flap type control and 1/2 as effect at low-supersonic speeds.
