delta wings


January 27, 2022

Delta Wings is a triangle-shaped wing. It is named for its similarity in shape to the Greek letter delta (Δ). Triangular rocket stabilizers were described in 1529-1556 by Conrad Haas and in the 17th century by Kazimierz Siemienowicz. In the United States, Robert T. Jones, in the service of the NACA during World War II, developed a theory for supersonic delta wings. First published in January 1945, this approach differed from Alexander Lippisch's earlier work on thick deltas by combining a delta plane with a thin airfoil. This design proved superior and would form the basis of all practical supersonic deltas, such as those first made by Convair.
