Wind-tunnel investigation of horizontal tails III :unswept and 35 degrees swept-back plan forms of aspect ratio 6

Dods, Jules, B., Jr.

Results of wind-tunnel tests of model horizontal tails of aspect ratio 6 with unswept and 35 degree swept-back plan forms are presented. The lift, hinge-moment, and pitching-moment coefficients and the pressure coefficients across the elevator nose seal are given as functions of the angle of attack and elevator deflection. The effects of standard roughness and removal of the elevator nose seal upon the lift and hinge-moment parameters are also given.
