Aerodynamic research on fuselages with rectangular cross section


naca-tm-1414
1958


The two-dimensional flow characteristics around square and rectangular cross sections with rounded edges as calculated by conformal mapping techniques are presented and compared with corresponding results from elliptical and rectangular cross sections. A few examples of the fuselage induced rolling moment due to sideslip are presented.
