The pressure distribution over a long elliptical wing tip on a biplane in flight

Rhode, Richard V
December 1932

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