Effects of small angles of sweep and moderate amounts of dihedral on stalling and lateral characteristics of a wing-fuselage combination equipped with partial- and full-span double slotted flaps

Teplitz, Jerome

Tests of a wing-fuselage combinations incorporating NACA 65-series airfoil sections were conducted in the NACA 19-foot pressure tunnel. The investigation included the tests with flaps neutral and with partial- and full-span double slotted flaps deflected to determine the effects of (1) variations of wing sweep between -4 degrees and 8 degrees on stalling and lateral stability and control characteristics and (2) variations of dihedral between 0 degree and 6.75 degrees on lateral stability characteristics.
