Wind-tunnel tests at low speed of swept and yawed wings having various plan forms

Dec 1951

Results are presented of wind-tunnel tests made at low speed of various small-scale models of sweptback, sweptforward, and yawed wings. The tests covered changes in aspect ratio, taper ratio, and tip shape. Some data were obtained with high-lift devices on sweptback wings and with ailerons on sweptforward wings. The data have been briefly analyzed and some comparisons have been made with the available theory.
