Abstract:

ATTACK. Given only the ody size, altitude an velocity, the attenuation of a specified signal frequency may be obtained. The advantage of the method is its amenability to hand calculation rather than extensive computer programming. This method for determining hypersonic flow characteristics is compared to a more elaborate solution. Signal attenuation computations are made for several re-entry body types. Author
