Abstract:

Tests were conducted in the Aerodynamic Wind Tunnel 4T to obtain store separation data and aerodynamic loads data on the MK-82GP, BLU-27, and 450-gal fuel tank in the flow field of the A-10A aircraft. Data were obtained at Mach numbers of 0.35 and 0.60 at a simulated altitude of 5000 ft. Free-stream force and moment data were also obtained for each store at Mach numbers of 0.35, 0.50, and 0.60. This report contains a description of the test and the recorded data, and presents an index of data obtained.
