Description: "Aerodynamic force tests were made in the N.A.C.A. 7 by 10 foot wind tunnel on a model Clark Y wing with a 20 percent chord split flap deflected 60 degrees downward. The tests were made to determine the effect of partial-span split flaps, located at various positions along the wing span on the aerodynamic characteristics of the wing-and-flap combination. The different lengths and locations of the flaps were obtained by cutting off portions of a full-span flap, first from the tips and then from the center. The results are given in the form of curves of lift, drag, and center of pressure" (p. 1).
