Abstract : The lift coefficient and center of pressure of swept finite wings are calculated. The product, A beta, the aspect ratio times the Mach parameter and the ratio, k/beta, the tangent of the sweep angle divided by the Mach parameter, are the determining variables of the problem. Center of pressure and life coefficient have been plotted against k/beta for various values of A beta. (Author)
