Transonic lateral and longitudinal aerodynamic characteristics of a lateral-control system employing rotatable airfoils mounted vertically at the wing tips of an unswept wing-fuselage-tail combination
Description: Report presenting the aerodynamic characteristics of a new type of lateral control through a range of Mach numbers. The control consisted of airfoils mounted vertically at the tips of the wing and could be rotated to induce rolling moments or lift on the wing surface. Results regarding lateral-control characteristics and lift-control characteristics are provided.
