Abstract:

Force and moment data and vapor-screen photographs were obtained in the 40-in. supersonic tunnel of the von Karman Gas Dynamics Facility on a Tomahawk sounding rocket model. Data were obtained with and without model spin at Mach number 5 at a Reynolds number, based on model length, of 27.3 x 10 to the 6th power. Side force and moment data are presented for 0- and 1.5-deg canted fins along with vapor-screen photographs for the zero cant fins. Also, data are presented illustrating the effects of an offset nose.
