Abstract:

The RAP is gun-launched, rocket-assisted projectile. Wind tunnel tests were carried out for two 5 inch weapons, one for a 38, the other for a 54 caliber gun. The purpose of these tests was to measure the Magnus force and moment coefficients. In addition, the normal force and pitching moment coefficients were also obtained.
