- An experimental investigation was conducted in an 11- by 11-foot transonic wind tunnel to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of three oblique high aspect ratio wings in combination with a high fineness-ratio Sears-Haack body. The three wings had the same elliptical planform and base line curvature but had different airfoil sections. One wing had an airfoil section designed to have a lift coefficient of 1.0 at a Mach number of 0.7, another to have shock-free supersonic flow over the upper surface, and the other to have a lift coefficient of 1.3 at a Mach number of 0.6. Longitudinal and lateral-directional stability data were obtained at wing yaw angles of 0 deg, 45 deg, 50 deg, and 60 deg over a test Mach number range from 0.6 to 1.4 for angles of attack between minus 7 deg and 9 deg. Reynolds numbers for the study were 4 and 6 million per foot. Flow-visualization studies were made to examine the nature of the flow on the wing surfaces. Notable differences were found in the aerodynamic characteristics of the three wing-body combinations, particularly in the lateral-directional characteristics.
