Abstract:

The construction and use of empirical methods for predicting aerodynamic characteristics of bodytail missile configurations are described. Methods are applicable to the case of combined angle of attack up to 25 degrees and roll up to 90 degrees. Mach number range is 0.8 - 1.2. The methods deal with the separate components of the missile and with their mutual interactions. Comparisons between predicted and experimental data show generally good agreement.
