High-Alpha Flight Dynamics Research on the X-29 Configuration Using Dynamic Model Test Techniques 881420

High-angle-of-attack flight dynamics of the X-29 configuration were studied using dynamic model test techniques. These tests identified phenomena including wing rock, spins, and tumbling which dominate the high-α behavior of the configuration and define its usable flight envelope. Results of these tests have been used to design flight control concepts to minimize adverse behavior. Planned high-angle-of-attack flight tests of the X-29 airplane will provide an opportunity to validate the model predictions.
