Some Effects of Propeller Operation on the Distribution of the Load on the Vertical Tail Surface of a Typical Pursuit Airplane
Description: Report discusses the results of testing on the pressure distribution at several longitudinal sections of the vertical tail surface of the Curtiss P-40K airplane at various angles of attack and angles of yaw and with the propeller removed and propeller operating. Results regarding the chordwise pressure distributions, effects of propeller operation on the spanwise distribution of normal-force coefficient, total normal-force coefficients, and effect of propeller operation on the variation of vertical-tail normal-force coefficients are presented.
