characteristics of a straight cantilever wing Results are presented to show the effects on the flutter characteristics of mounting concentrated weights at various positions on an untapered wing model. The model was mounted as a rigid cantilever and was tested with concentrated weights that were 38, 60, 90, and 100 percent of the wing weight.
