Abstract:

A test was conducted in the Propulsion Wind Tunnel 16T to determine the static stability characteristics of the M-117 Bomb with any of three tail fin configurations. Tests were made over the Mach number range of 0.6 to 1.4 for an angle-of-attack range of -3 to 19 deg, and fin orientations of 11.25 to -101. 25 deg. The M-117 Bomb was statically stable for all three tail fin configurations for the Mach number range of the tests.
