Abstract:

The results of an investigation in the NOL 40 X 49 cm aeroballistics tunnel no. 1 to study the static stability and drag of the low-drag bomb at subsonic and supersonic speeds. The following tests were made a study of configurational changes designed to reduce the yaw of the bomb bdrag of the 250-pound bomb with supporting lugs and c stability of an 8-fin bomb with reduced fin span to improve the ground clearance problem.
