EXPERIMENTS ON RUDDERS WITH SMALL FLAPS IN FREE-STREAM AND BEHIND A PROPELLER

Water tunnel experiments were performed to determine the characteristics of rudders with small flaps both in the free stream and behind a propeller. The results include plots of lift, drag, rudder moment, and flap moment coefficient for a complete range of angles of attack and flap deflection.
