A variable camber apparatus for the leading edge of an airfoil that is operable for lift variation at high airspeeds of a jet aircraft such as for maneuvering of fighter aircraft. The cambering apparatus comprises an upper surface flexible skin panel which is supported along its inner edge by a wing spar assembly and along its outermost edge, by an airfoil edge forming structure. A hinged rib member, through a kinematic linkage mechanism associated between itself and the structure at the outermost edge of the airfoil section, bends and torsionally twists...
A variable camber airfoil, comprising: an upper surface; a rib member hinged at its inner-end to relatively fixed structure of the airfoil for rotation in a chordwise plane and having its free-end extending outwardly therefrom toward the edge of the airfoil; means connecting the upper surface with the free-end of the rib member for support thereby; means for rotating the rib member about its hinged inner-end; means operatively associated with the means that impart rotational movement to the rib member for controllably bending the upper surface and thereb...
