Theoretical basic span loading characteristics of wings with arbitrary sweep, aspect ratio, and taper ratio

Victor I. Stevens
Dec 1948

A procedure based on the Weissinger method has been devised so that the basic span loading and associated aerodynamic characteristics can be rapidly predicted for wings having arbitrary values of sweep, aspect ratio, taper ratio, and twist. A method for correcting for the effects of compressibility is given.
