Abstract:

Subsonic wind-tunnel test results of a tandem wing aircraft configuration are given. Conventional longitudinal tests out of ground effect, and similar tests in ground effect, employing the ground board test technique, were conducted on the configuration. Test variables included height above the surface, forward and aft wing incidence angles, angle of attack, and center-of- gravity location. Author
