Abstract:

Tests were conducted on a 13-scale model of the Pye Wacket missile in the 40-in. supersonic wind tunnel of the von Karman Gas Dynamics Facility at Mach numbers from 1.5 to 5 and Reynolds numbers per inch from 0.08 to 0.47 million. Static stability characteristics and detailed pressure distributions were obtained at simulated forward, side, and aft launch conditions, at angles of attack from -5 to 15 deg, and at yaw angles from 0 to 180 deg. The influence of control jets on the surface pressure distributions and the interaction forces produced by the jets are shown.
