The principal effect of subsonic trailing edges on the damping in roll and pitch of thin sweptback wings in a supersonic stream is evaluated with the aid of some conical and quasi-conical flows previously derived. The effect is expressed in the form of approximate correction terms to be added to the corresponding expressions that are obtained when the trailing-edge disturbance is ignored.
