Hacker Stability in aviation; an introduction to dynamical stability as applied to the motions of aeroplanes, b. A swept wing is a wing that angles either backward or occasionally forward from its root rather than in a straight sideways direction.

Wing sweep has the effect of delaying the shock waves and accompanying aerodynamic drag rise caused by fluid compressibility near the speed of sound, improving wings are therefore often used on jet aircraft designed to fly at.

The forward swept wing idea resulted from the transonic test of an aft swept wing of a Grumman configuration which had been proposed to satisfy the NASA HiMAT RFP (request for proposal).

The winning proposal was submitted by Rockwell, and the Rockwell HiMAT was built, flown, and is currently in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Full text of "NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS) Aeronautical Engineering: A continuing bibliography with indexes (supplement )" See other formats.

Free-flight model studies of the dynamic stability and control characteristics of delta wing designs were conducted in the Free-Flight Tunnel, including an investigation of the Consolidated Vultee (later Convair) XF, which was the first U.S.

Wind tunnel test times, as shown in Fig. 1, have been growing to o h (all aerodynamic sub-components, full configuration system, and all speed ranges), although the experimental research aircraft Grumman XA required less than h before maiden flight in This was in the same order as the development of the F 30 years Cited by: It’s a shame that none of the many pure-rocket interceptors of the late 40s and early 50s made it into the air, especially thewhich made aircraft appearing 20 years later look a bit staid.

broad wings tapered on the leading edge with squared-off tips carrying swept fins and rudders. Beyond these were small forward-swept ailerons.

InGrumman engineers had analyzed data from HiMAT model tests in NASA Langley’s 8-foot transonic pressure tunnel that promised a decrease in induced drag and improvements in maneuverability for a wing “by sweeping the wing forward (leading edge of the tip forward of the leading edge of the root).” 4 0 A Grumman memo dated April Effect of Reynolds number on lift of a general-aviation model as measured in wind tunnel tests.

Data were obtained at relatively low values of Reynolds number corresponding to model free- flight tests and high values representative of full-scale flight tests.

The full-scale data show a markedly higher magnitude and angle of attack for maximum lift. This wind tunnel investigation used a model of the SCIF-5 fighter design concept. It featured a highly swept cranked-arrow wing designed for a cruise Mach number of Leading-edge sweep angle was 74 degrees on the inboard wing segments and 65 degrees on the outer wing panels.The conventional gear configuration, being a relic of the past is affectionately dubbed a "tail dragger" by pilots.

This configuration is unstable, and, while rolling along the runway with this type of gear, the pilot must exercise prudent brake and rudder steering to prevent excessive yaw.5/5(5).A New Twist in Flight Research.
