Abstract:

A study of the roll control effectiveness of small, nose mounted canards is presented. Mach number was varied from 0.6 to 4.5, canard differential deflection from -3 deg to 5 deg, and angle of attack from -3 deg to 6 deg. The canards were small with a clipped delta planform and were tested in two longitudinal nose positions in combination with both a planar tail and a ring tail. It is shown that the effectiveness of small, nose mounted canards as roll control devices depends upon tail shape. Author
