Description
The George B. McCullough Papers contain personal research materials and publications including data charts, equations, article drafts, NACA Technical Notes, and NASA Technical Notes. The collection as a whole documents McCullough's investigations into airfoils, helicopter rotors, and launch vehicles.
Background
George B. McCullough came to work at NACA Ames as an aeronautical engineer in the early 1940s, soon after earning a degree from Stanford University. During the course of McCullough's employment, the NACA's theoretical research on wing design was extensive, driving the need for experimental work. McCullough started out conducting investigations on airfoil wing design and theory. Contributing to a number of NACA and NASA Technical Notes, McCullough's work on boundary layer profiles, stalling mechanics, leading edges and interpretation of test data helped advance aircraft wing design.
