Abstract:
The state of the art of STOL aerodynamic technology for selected lift/propulsion concepts has been surveyed to identify the available test data and prediction methods in the literature. The report consists of two volumes. In Volume I important areas of technology and information necessary for the evaluation of STOL aircraft aerodynamics are listed; the aerodynamic test data and prediction methodology relevant to the deflected slipstream and externally blown flap concepts are assessed, with emphasis on the latter; an empirical method for the prediction of the longitudinal aerodynamic characteristics of externally blown flap configurations is presented; and high-lift technology for five lift/propulsion concepts is assessed in application to a medium-sized STOL transport. Volume II consists of a bibliography that resulted from a literature search for aerodynamic information related to seven lift/propulsion concepts suitable for STOL aircraft. The bibliography contains references to approximately 900 reports classified by concept and by technological area.
