Barnes, Robert H.
The tests reported herein were made for the purpose of determining the high-speed load distribution on the wing of a 3/16-scale model of a scout-bomber airplane. Comparisons are made between the root bending-moment and section torsional-moment coefficients as obtained experimentally and derived analytically. The results show good correlation for the bending-moment coefficients but considerable disagreement for the torsional-moment coefficients, the measured moments being greater than the analytical moments. The effects of Mach number on both the bending-moment and torsional-moment coefficients were small.
