dc.description.abstract A collection has been made of aerodynamic data on air brakes. The characteristics of wing brake flaps have been analysed, including the effect of venting or perforating the flaps. In particular, the design of brake flaps so as to have no appreciable effect on lift or trim is discussed, and in this connection the relative merits of double split trailing-edge flaps, Youngman flaps, air brakes behind the tail, etc., are compared. A brief description of some methods of balancing brake flaps is given. The small amount of data available on wing and tail buffeting due to brake flaps has also been analysed. en_US
