Abstract:

A discussion is presented on a test program for the XB-36 bomber including scale effect and stall studies, flap effectiveness and the servo tab method of aileron control. These parts of the program were agreed to be satisfactory. A possible revision of the balancing tab study was considered, but limited to a study of the effect of tab bulbs in eliminating the undesirable aileron floating tendency. In connection with spoiler tests the desirability of placing all spoiler segments on the same shaft was stressed.
