EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS ON THE STALLING CHARACTERISTICS OF AIRPLANES WITH T-TAILS

EXPERIMENTELLE UNTERSUCHUNGEN ZUM UEBERZIEHVERHALTEN

Using a wing-horizontal tail model with four wings of different sweep, different taper, and aspect ratio 5, systematic wind tunnel tests (three-component measurements) have been carried out up to high angles of attack (more than 50 degree ) to investigate the wing-horizontal tail interference. Within the same angle of attack range two airplane models (transport aircraft, AR = 5.6; fighter aircraft, AR = 2.4) have been tested. Tailplane incidence, height, and rear position have been varied. For the airplane models also the effects of flap positions have been investigated, and downwash angle, tailplane efficiency, and dynamic pressure ratio at the horizontal tail have been estimated from the aerodynamic coefficients measured.
