Lateral-Control Characteristics and Dihedral Effect of a Wing-Body Combination With a Variable-Incidence Triangular Wing and Wing-Tip Ailerons at a Mach Number of 1.52
Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation of aileron effectiveness and dihedral effect for a wing-body combination with a variable-incidence triangular wing with modified half-delta controls at the wing tips. The tests were conducted at a Mach number of 1.52 at a Reynolds number of 0.82 million. The experimental value of aileron effectiveness at 0 degrees angle of attack was approximately 78 percent of the value predicted by linear theory, and the effectiveness decreased with increasing wing angle of attack.
