Oblique Flying Wings : An Introduction and White Paper

  title={Oblique Flying Wings : An Introduction and White Paper},
The purpose of this white paper is to provide a range of information to potential designers of oblique wing aircraft, including theoretical and conceptual foundations, general performance characteristics and mission-based optimization, more detailed parametric design studies, and other supporting resources. A collection of technical papers related to oblique wings has been compiled as part of this study. Many of these papers have not been widely distributed, but are now available and linked to… Expand


Applications of oblique-wing technology - An overview
A summary of oblique-wing technology programs, including system studies and experimental activities, is presented. Oblique-wing civil transports were studied and compared with conventionalExpand
Unique flight characteristics of the AD-1 oblique-wing research airplane
Flight characteristics associated with an oblique-wing airplane have been studied with limited scope and complexity using the AD-1 research vehicle. The AD-1 is a low-speed, low-cost, manned airplaneExpand
Structural and aerodynamic considerations for an oblique all-wing aircraft
A key design issue for the Oblique All-Wing aircraft is the packaging of the payload compartment, the fuel tanks, and the other internal components within the airfoil. The internal arrangement ofExpand
The aerodynamic design of oblique wing aircraft
The paper focuses on those aspects of the design and analysis methods of partirular importance to oblique wings, and some of the methods employed in the development of a supersonic research aircraft with an oblique wing. Expand
The oblique wing - Aircraft design for transonic and low supersonic speeds
Abstract In tests at transonic speeds a conventional “subsonic” wing turned at an oblique angle to the flow has demonstrated lift-drag ratios higher than conventional swept-back or delta wings. WhenExpand
Flight-determined aerodynamic derivatives of the AD-1 oblique-wing research airplane
The AD-1 is a variable-sweep oblique-wing research airplane that exhibits unconventional stability and control characteristics. In this report, flight-determined and predicted stability and controlExpand
AD-1 oblique wing aircraft program
The oblique wing concept for super- and subsonic transport was assessed by analysis and wind tunnel radio control model and remotely piloted vehicle testing. A one-sixth scale wind tunnel model and aExpand
New design goals and a new shape for the SST.
Considerations are given to demonstrate that a wing which pivots as a whole would permit supersonic aircraft which avoid sonic boom and reduce noise around airports. Several such wing designs areExpand
Aeroelastic Control of Oblique-Wing Aircraft
The U.S. Navy and NASA are currently involved in the design and development of an unsymmetric-skew-wing aircraft capable of 65° wing sweep and flight at Mach 1.6. A generic skew-wing aircraft modelExpand
Oblique wing supersonic transport concepts
The economic and technical features of two SST concepts that offer the potential of reducing the impact of the environmental constraints on the aircraft design and performance are presented. TheExpand
