Summary of Measurements in Langley Full-Scale Tunnel of Maximum Lift Coefficients and Stalling Characteristics of AirplanesThe results of measurements in the Langley full-scale tunnel of the maximum lift coefficients and stalling characteristics of airplanes have been collected. The data have been analyzed to show the nature of the effects on maximum lift and stall of wing geometry, fuselages and nacelles, propeller slipstream, surface roughness, and wing leading-edge appendages such as ducts, armaments, tip slats, and airspeed heads. Comparisons of full-scale-tunnel and flight measurements of maximum lift and stall are included in some cases, and the effects of the different testing techniques on the maximum-lift measurements are also given.
