The X-29 flight-research program
Author and Affiliation:
Putnam, T. W.(NASA Flight Research Center, Edwards, CA, United States)
Abstract: The X-29 experimental aircraft, which is a technology integration and evaluation platform for such features as static longitudinal instability, sweptforward wings and three-surface longitudinal control, offers an opportunity to validate the entire aircrft design process through careful correlation and comparison of flight test results with wind tunnel results and design predictions. Attention is presently given to the design features of the aircraft, which encompass supercritical airfoils, digital flight control, and aeroelastically tailored composite wings, as well as to the flight test program that was formulated to investigate the interactions and relative merits of these design features, in light of data gathered by carefully positioned sensors.
