Wind-tunnel investigation of bomb-bay configurations intended to minimize the tumbling of light-weight bombs
Description: Report presenting an investigation in the 300 mph 7- by 10-foot tunnel to determine what modifications could be made to conventional bomb bays to reduce the tumbling difficulties experienced with light-weight bombs. The investigation indicated that there is a definite region of reversed flow inside the bomb bay which must be weakened or destroyed if good drops are to be obtained.
