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.
