Abstract:

Wind tunnel tests were conducted using 0.05 and 0.0416-scale models to study the separation characteristics of several munitions from the F-4C and F-111E aircraft, respectively. For the F-4C tests, separation trajectories of the MK-82 GPB, SUU-3OHB, MK-20 Rockeye, MK-84 GPB, MK-84 LGB, and MK-84 EOGB stores were initiated from a multiple ejection rack MER on the right wing outboard and centerline pylons or from the right wing outboard and inboard pylons alone. Data were obtained at Mach numbers from 1.05 to 1.6 at simulated altitudes of 5,000 to 30,000 ft. Other simulated flight variables included dive angle 0 to 60 deg, parent aircraft acceleration 1 to 3 g, and store cg position. For the F-111E tests, separation trajectories of the SUU-30OHB store were initiated from a multiple rack BRU-3AA on the numbers 3 and 6 pylons or from pylon numbers 4 and 6 alone. Data were obtained at Mach numbers from 0.9 to 1.3 at simulated altitudes of 5,000 to 20,000 ft. Other simulated flight variables included parent-aircraft wing sweep angle 50 and 72.5 deg and different ejector forces.
