An investigation of the rolling effectiveness at transonic and supersonic speeds of a wing-aileron configuration simulating the D-558-2 airplane has been made by means of a rocket-propelled test vehicle. The variation of rolling effectiveness with Mach number is similar to that obtained previously for tapered sweptback wings having full-span, 0.2-chord ailerons.
