Wind-tunnel investigation of effects of unsymmetrical horizontal-tail arrangements on power-on static longitudinal stability of a single-engine airplane model
Description: Report presenting a wind-tunnel investigation to determine the effects of unsymmetrical horizontal-tail arrangements on the power-on static longitudinal stability of a single-engine single-rotation airplane. Extreme asymmetry in the horizontal tail was found to cause issues with the longitudinal stability, but the "practical" arrangement tested did not show much improvement. Results regarding the longitudinal stability tests, computations, and lateral and directional trim are provided.
