Abstract:

This report documents the external flow fields caused by various weapon configurations on the wing of an F-4 aircraft, verifies assumptions made in the flow angularity technique, and presents the documentation for the Flow Angularity Computer Program with example trajectories. The flow angularity program is presently capable of calculating the trajectories of stores off the inboard and outboard wing stations in either single, triple ejector rack, or multiple ejector rack configurations. The assumptions made in the flow angularity technique have been analyzed and generally validated as good approximations.
