Abstract:

The governing equations and a computer program are developed which calculate the static and dynamic aerodynamic coefficients for bodies composed of right circular cone frusta. The resulting combined body possesses one plane of symmetry and the coefficients are referred to that plane. The center of gravity and the moment reference point are arbitrary locations in the plane of symmetry. Flow shielding for the complete angle of attack range is considered for each frustum segment, but mutual shielding of one segment on another is neglected. The effect of any gap-overlap region at the junctions of rotated segments is also neglected. Example calculations are presented for an asymmetric conical body and an asymmetric cone-cylinder-flare configuration. Author
