Abstract:

The mutual aerodynamic interference problem for two axisymmetric bodies has been analyzed using the image system technique. In order to facilitate this analysis, it has been assumed that small perturbation solutions are valid. It is further assumed that the external stores are slender bodies and that the mutual interference can be analyzed by first assuming a cross-flow solution. The image system in the cross-flow plane consists of source-sink pairs appropriately located by using the Milne-Thomson circle theorem. The actual three-dimensional source-sink paris are displaced from the body axis according to the cross flow image system. Their strengths are then determined by the Rankine method. Good agreement has been found between the theoretical and experimental results.
