Abstract:

Equations are derived for computing static and dynamic aerodynamic derivatives from forced oscillation wind tunnel tests of volute-stabilized munition models. A linear model is used for the pitching moment equation which considers small pitch angles and small volute spring angles or small perturbations, with no shift in the center of gravity.
