An approximate method of accounting for the effects of sweep has been applied to previously determined equations for the hinge-moment parameters of control surfaces on unswept wings. The method accounts for the effects of sweep on the section parameters and makes use of the approximation that, regardless of the sweep angle, the relation between the average induced angle of attack and the lift coefficient is the same as that for an unswept elliptic wing.
