Abstract:

Selected test results are presented to show the effect of aspect ratio on the aerodynamic and heat-transfer characteristics of the SNAP-29 fuel block which is a flat plate configuration with cylindrical edges. Static-force and moment and heat-transfer data were measured on models having aspect ratios of 1.7 and 3.2 at angles of attack from 0 to 90 deg and yaw rotations from 0 to 90 deg. The tests were conducted at Mach number 8 and Reynolds numbers from 0.22 to 0.46 million, based on model length.
