Abstract:

A parametric study was conducted to determine the separation characteristics of an M-117 bomb from a Triple Ejection Rack TER located on the left-wing inboard pylon of an F-4C aircraft. Data were obtained using 0.05- scale models at Mach numbers from 0.50 to 1.30 and at simulated altitudes of 5000 and 20,000 ft. The effects of variations in mass, moment of inertia, center-of-gravity location, ejector force, initial store attitude on the TER, and presence of adjacent stores were investigated.
