Tests of a triangular wing of aspect ratio 2 in the Ames 12-foot pressure wind tunnel III :the effectiveness and hinge moments of a skewed wing-tip flap

Kolbe, Carl D., Tinling, Bruce E.

Results of wind-tunnel tests of a semispan model of a triangular wing of aspect ratio 2 with a skewed wing-tip flap are presented. Lift, drag, pitching-moment, and hinge-moment data are included for subsonic Mach numbers up to 0.95. The flap showed extremely high hinge moments and low effectiveness as a longitudinal control. Although less affected by compressibility, this flap is indicated to be inferior to a constant-chord flap when applied to this triangular wing.
