Additional results in a free-flight investigation of control effectiveness of full-span, 0.2-chord plain ailerons at high subsonic, transonic, and supersonic speeds to determine some effects of wing sweepback, aspect ratio, taper, and section thickness ratio

Description: Report discussing an aerodynamic control effectiveness study using free-flight, rocket-propelled test vehicles. Information about the effects of wing sweepback, aspect ratio, taper ratio, and section thickness ratio on the rolling effectiveness of full-span, sealed ailerons is provided.

Wind-tunnel investigation of a full-span retractable flap in combination with full-span plain and internally balanced ailerons on a tapered wing

Description: Report discusses the results of an investigation into a full-span retractable flap in combination with a full-span plain and internally balanced ailerons on a tapered wing of a typical fighter airplane.The flap was designed to improve lateral control during high lifts for landing and take-off. The effects on the maximum life coefficient, aileron effectiveness, estimated rates of roll, and stick forces are provided.
