Abstract:

The aerodynamic coefficients of the experimental 5 inch38 RAP projectile were established by free flight range tests for Mach numbers from 0.63 through 2.33. Inert test shells were used, and drag and stability properties were determined for the unboosted condition and for primarily small yaw conditions.
