Abstract:

A study is reported which generated design charts and developed associated boundaries for identifying departure and uncoordinated roll-reversal flight characteristics as a function of three aerodynamic parameters. This information should be valuable for specification, design and evaluation purposes. The investigation utilized a large angle, six-degree-of-freedom digital computer program to simulate the motions of a fighter performing a severe air combat maneuver for different combinations of rolling and yawing coefficient and lateral control characteristics.
