An investigation of forward-located fixed spoilers and deflectors as gust alleviators on an unswept-wing model
Description: Report presenting an investigation in the 300 mph 7- by 10-foot tunnel and gust tunnel to determine the static longitudinal aerodynamic characteristics an the gust-alleviation capabilities of forward-located fixed spoilers, deflectors, or a spoiler-deflector combination on a simulated transport airplane model with an unswept wing. Results regarding the static/force test, dynamic/gust-tunnel test, and short-period frequency and damping are provided.
