Abstract:

A research study currently being conducted by the U. S. Army Missile Command is aimed at developing a technique for predicting the aerodynamic characteristics of missiles that use lateral or transverse jets as the control system. As a part of this study, an experimental test program was conducted with the use of a body of revolution with a lateral jet located at several body locations over the Mach number range from 0.8 to 4.5. The jet pressure ratio was varied between 0 and 100 in increments of 20, and both slots and circular nozzles were tested. The data are presented in plots and tabular form. In addition, short descriptions of two other approaches are also presented. These approaches are compared with the experimental data and show agreement with 10 to 16 percent.
