Abstract : Wing and aileron aerodynamic characteristics are obtained from experimental data of wings undergoing the phenomenon of aileron reversal. Wind tunnel tests were conducted on both a straight wing and a 45 degree sweptback wing at Mach numbers of 0.6, 0.7, O.8 and O.85. The test results are presented graphically and compared to theoretical and empirical aerodynamic characteristics commonly used in reversal calculations.
