Downwash and wake behind untapered wings of various aspect ratios and angles of sweep

H. Page Hoggard, Jr, John R. Hagerman
Oct 1948

An investigation has been made in the Langley 7- by 10-foot tunnel to determine the downwash angles and the dynamic-pressure ratios behind wings of various sweep angles and aspect ratios, and the aerodynamic force characteristics of the wings. A brief discussion of some of the effects of the more important variables is presented.
