dc.descriptionThe object of this test was to determine the variation in aileron effectiveness with airfoil section, and in aileron efficiency with aileron shape. ... In general, it may be said that in order to obtain a large maximum control, combined with the greatest efficiency, ailerons of long span should be used ... the best aileron chord length is between about 0.21 C and 0.28 C, or roughly about one quarter of the main chord. For the best span of aileron, the conclusion arrived at was that, roughly, it should be about two-thirds of the semispan for an airplane of any aspect ration, and for any wing tips of ordinary design.en_US
