Compound Tilting Wing for STOL Configurations 1999-01-5654

An empirically based, analytical tool for calculating lift, drag and pitching moment of tilting wing configurations is presented, and used to develop the general characteristics of the Compound Tilting Wing (CTW), a variation on the conventional tilting wing configuration. The CTW utilizes an inboard leading edge extension, which acts as a canard when the wing tilts to augment pitch control during low speed operations and conforms to the wing at zero tilt. This scheme allows the designer more degrees of freedom for overall configuration layout and propulsion system integration for STOL design.
