Theoretical characteristics in supersonic flow of constant-chord partial-span control surfaces on rectangular wings having finite thickness

Warren A. Tucker, Robert L. Nelson
Sep 1948

The Busemann third-order approximation for two-dimensional isentropic flow was used in suitable conjunction with three-dimensional solutions found by the linearized theory to determine analytically, for small angles of attack and control deflections, the control-surface characteristics of partial-span constant-chord flaps on rectangular wings having finite thickness.
