Abstract : The objective of Work Unit 08(V/ STOL Aerodynamics) was the study of the low speed aerodynamics of V/ STOL configurations, with particular emphasis on the fan-in-wing. Principal items of research accomplished under WU 08 include studies of airfoils with single and double inlets on their upper surfaces and lift fan inlet interference phenomena. A definitive paper from the German literature on the roll-up of a jet in a cross flow was translated into English. (Modified author abstract)
