Abstract:

The available aerodynamic data on the Navy Low Drag Bomb is summarized. The data were obtained from a series of investigations conducted by the Naval Ordnance Laboratory personnel in the NOL Supersonic Tunnel no. 1, the NOL Aerodynamics Range no. 1, the NOL Pressurized Ballistics Range no. 3, the David Taylor Model Basin 8- x 10-ft Subsonic Wind Tunnel, and the Cornell Aeronautical Institute 3- x 4-ft Transonic Wind Tunnel. The aerodynamic data are presented as a function of angle of attack at Mach numbers of 0.80, 1.56, and 2. 16 and as functions of Mach numbers between 0.80 and 2.16.
