Abstract:

An experimental investigation was made of the rolling motion of a cruciform fin-alone and bodyfin configuration at angles of attack through 90 degrees. It was found that large variations in the steady-state rolling velocity occur with change in angle of attack. The mechanism causing these variations is discussed using results obtained from roll velocity measurements and smoke picture techniques. Author
