Summary:
An analysis has been made of factors affecting the net lift increment attainable with trailing-edge split flaps on tailless airplanes. The flaps investigated in the analysis were designed to contribute zero pitching moments about the wing aerodynamic center when deflected. Calculations were made of the lift and pitching-moment characteristics of flaps of this type over a range of design conditions in which sweepback  Read more...

Abstract:

An analysis has been made of factors affecting the net lift increment attainable with trailing-edge split flaps on tailless airplanes. The flaps investigated in the analysis were designed to contribute zero pitching moments about the wing aerodynamic center when deflected. Calculations were made of the lift and pitching-moment characteristics of flaps of this type over a range of design conditions in which sweepback angle, aspect ratio, taper ratio, flap chord, and flap deflection were widely varied. In addition, calculations were made to determine the effect of the various parameters upon the loss in lift incurred in trimming the stability moments of a tailless airplane. A method is given for roughly estimating the maximum lift coefficient of tailless airplanes.
