Abstract:

Experimental data from Davidson Laboratory on induced mass and drag of the basic finner missile have been reevaluated at the Naval Weapons Laboratory. All but four of the runs must be discarded as determinations of induced mass because of uncertainty in velocity. It is concluded that an insight into the mechanism of induced mass can only be achieved through mathematical analysis.
