Abstract:

Test data are reported for two ring-wing and two multiple-fin stabilizers mounted on the tail of a cylinder combined with ogive oversize heads of 1.38 caliber diameter and varying lengths. Wind tunnel tests were run at five 5 Mach numbers from 1.75 to 3.5 and the resulting aerodynamic coefficients are plotted versus angle of attack and Mach number. The results are discussed regarding their effects on the longitudinal stability for the various configurations. Author
