A comparison of three theoretical methods of calculating span load distribution on swept wings

Nicholas H. Van Dorn, John Deyoung
Nov 1947

Three methods for calculating span load distribution, those developed by V. M. Falkner, Wm. Mutterperl, and J. Weisinger, had been applied to five swept wings. The angles of sweep ranged from -45 degrees to +45 degrees. These methods were examined to establish their relative accuracy and ease of application.
