During part of the CC-Disc investigation, the slot height around the perimeter was changed to determine the sensitivity of wing performance to slot gap setting.

This plot confirms the ability of CCW airfoils to generate very C high lift and associated drag (reduced LID,) for approach, plus much higher L / D e at somewhat lower Cl for takeoff and climbout. Because of the latter, the 30-deg CCW flap at reduced C, appears to be an excellent configuration for takeoff. One additional benefit results for the 0-deg flap CCW case. When in cruise, drag is low because of the sharp TE, but should blowing be initiated without flap deflection (Fig. 28), significant lift is generated by the flap curvature, while drag reduction occurs due to thrust recovery.

The same slot tape-over technique used in the CC-Duct test was employed for flow control configuration changes on the CC-Disc. Results from the first configuration group are shown in Fig. 23 for the model at zero pitch angle, gradually increasing the flow ejection circumference region. Lift is shown as a function of the region of blowing, starting with unblown and then, centered about the trailing edge, increasing the perimeter region blown until there was full 360-deg fluid ejection. 026 in. 032 in.
