Abstract:

The purposes of these flight tests of roll systems were as follows To provide a sustained velocity region of flight and in this region to determine the rate of roll, the rate of change of rolling velocity resulting from differentially deflecting surfaces 1 at fixed angles and 2 with programmed movement, and to determine the damping in roll and the effectiveness of the roll control surface.
