An actuating mechanism for variable camber edges of aerodynamic airfoils－viz., variable camber leading edges and/or variable camber trailing edges－characterized by its rigidity and structural stability and which permits varying the camber of a flexible continuous airfoil skin while maintaining a uniform, essentially constant curvature throughout the chordal extent of deflection for any given degree of deflection; yet, wherein (a) the airfoil skin (i) is not required to function as a load carrying element, (ii) is not subjected to chord-wise stress from m...
In a continuous skin variable camber airfoil of the type having (i) a rigid, centrally located, span-wise structural wing box including means defining both leading and trailing structural main frames, (ii) a leading structural edge member spaced forwardly from said wing box, (iii) a trailing structural edge member spaced rearwardly from said wing box, and (iv) a wing chord reference plane extending through the leading and trailing edges of said airfoil, an improved actuating mechanism for interconnecting at least one of said leading and trailing structur...
