Abstract:

This is a revision of Table VII, Ballistic Research Laboratories Report No. 284, Form Factors of Projectiles 1942, and supplements thereof. The values in the present revision supersede those in the earlier editions with which they conflict. Some form factors with respect to specific projectiles are tabulated In order to obtain the form factor with respect to a typical projectile, multiply these by the form factor of the specific projectile which is plotted as a function of velocity. Graphs of the form factors of beveled slugs and a sphere are also included.
