This report consists of the first and second parts of the three part analytical portion of the High Angle of Attack Theory third phase of VRCs program of developing methods for assessing the non-uniform flow fields of wing- propeller slipstream aerodynamics. The three parts of the third phase effort are comprised of 1 Wings located at various heights in the jet, 2 Highly cambered wings as used in deflected slipstream VSTOL arrangements, and 3 Tilt wing configurations where the jet is at an angle to the free stream flow. The present report contains the basic theorectical development of the first two parts enumerated above. This portion of the third phase effort has greatly extended the applicability of the analysis by encompassing deflected slipstream VSTOL arrangements currently under development.
