Effect on the low-speed aerodynamic characteristics of a 49 degree sweptback wing having an aspect ratio of 3.78 of blowing air over the trailing-edge flap and aileron
Description: Report presenting an investigation in the full-scale tunnel to determine the effects on the aerodynamic characteristics of a 49.1 degree sweptback wing of blowing a high-energy stream of air over a trailing-edge flap and an aileron. The results indicated that significant increases in lift coefficient and an improvement in aileron effectiveness may be obtained by the blowing method of boundary-layer control.
