The Effect of a Change in Body Shape on the Loading of a 45 Degree Sweptback Wing-Body Combination at Transonic Speeds
Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation made in the 8-foot transonic tunnel of the pressure distribution on a wing-body combination with a 45 degree sweptback wing with aspect ratio 4, taper ratio 0.6, and NACA 65A006 airfoil sections parallel to the plane of symmetry. The chordwise pressure distributions, which were determined at various spanwise stations, indicate that the flow about the two configurations is the same. Results regarding basic pressure measurements and loading and aerodynamic characteristics are provided.
