Abstract:

Tests were conducted in the 40-in. supersonic tunnel on 0.182-scale models of basic and modified configurations of the Arapaho C test vehicle. Static stability and drag characteristics and data were obtained at Mach numbers from 2.5 to 5 at angles of attack from -5 to 15 deg. Reynolds number, based on the basic Arapaho C model length of 15.56 in., ranged from 590,000 to 7,960, 000. Selected results are presented showing the effects of Mach number and Reynolds number on the vehicle static stability and drag characteristics.
