Span load distribution on two monoplanes wing models as affected by twist and sweepback

Knight, Montgomery Noyes, Richard W
July 1930

The results presented in this note show the effect of twist and sweepback on the span load distribution over two monoplane wing models. The tests were made in the Atmospheric Wind Tunnel of the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory. The data are taken from the results of an investigation dealing primarily with lateral stability. As presented, they are suitable as an aid in the structural design of certain monoplane wings.
