May 1931


This note presents the results of flight pressure distribution tests on the right upper wing panel of a Douglas M-3 airplane equipped with a semicircular wing tip. The results are given in tables and curves in such form that the load distribution for any force coefficient within the usual range encountered in flight may easily be determined.
