What is it about?
A wind tunnel study that investigates the effect of a wing root gap on the lift and drag characteristics of a simple aircraft model.
Why is it important?
In the sUAS regime, unconventional wing design, like a wing root gap, is a possibility due to smaller structural scale. Usage of a wing root gap to control stall is a useful design that the sUAS platforms can employ to either fly at lower speeds or carry more payload.
