Aug 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 modified elliptical tip having a slight amount of washout. The results are given in tables and curves in such form that the load distribution for any normal force coefficient within the usual range encountered in flight may be determined.
