Abstract:

The Vertodyne fan-in-wing concept has been studied in a series of static and forward speed tests. A semi-span model was tested incorporating instrumentation for measuring fan thrust, torque and wing surface pressures. Forces and moments on the model were measured at the model support. Tests were performed at the University of Detroit using the available laboratory and wing tunnel facilities.
