Abstract:

Selected static-stability test results of five proposed SNAP-29 fuel block configurations are presented. Test configuration changes were made by varying the edge shape of the basic flat plate fuel block. Tests of 0.25- and 0. 50-scale models were conducted at a nominal Mach number of 8, Reynolds number based on model length of 0.6 x to the 6th power, and angles of attack from 0 to 90 deg. Results of model support interference studies employing oil flow, pressure distribution, and image-type force data techniques are presented.
