The zero-lift damping-in-roll derivative has been experimentally determined through high subsonic, transonic, and low supersonic speeds by a torque-nozzle forced-roll technique utilizing rocket -propelled models. The data have been collected from investigations using this technique for three -semispan-wing configurations to show the effects of wing plan form and airfoil section and, qualitatively, the effects of aeroelasticity.
