A comparative evaluation was made for all-movable delta and flap-type controls on several wing plan forms. Comparison of these experimental results from various test facilities shows the effectiveness on various wing plan forms and an evaluation of hinge-moment characteristics of all-movable delta controls, swept trailing-edge flap, and straight trailing-edge flap-type controls.
