Abstract:

The report concerns the aerodynamic force acting on a stationary missile in a uniform flow when it encounters a sharp-edged gust. The result is probably useful for preliminary design. Its use generally implies a more severe loading condition for the control servo design than that given by the quasi-steady assumption. But as far as the maximum bending moment in the missile body is concerned, the transient analysis gives practically the same result as the quasi-steady assumption. Author
