Abstract:

The aerodynamic characteristics of a general tilt-wingpropeller model were investigated at the Princeton Dynamic Model Tract Facility. The experiments included test conditions corresponding to free-stream velocities from slow backward flight through hovering and transition. Wing incidence angles ranging from 30 degrees forward flight to 90 degrees hovering flight were investigated. The experimental data are presented in graphs of lift, horizontal force, and pitching moment versus thrust in coefficient form based on free-stream velocity.
