Abstract:

Aerodynamic characteristics are presented for various lifting body configurations. Data were collected for an angle of attack sweep of -10 degrees to 10 degrees throughout a Mach number range of 1.5 to 4.0. The test Reynolds number per meter was 15,700,000. The data are presented as standard force coefficients which have additionally been transformed about a tunnel axis coordinate system to obtain lift and drag data. The normal force center of pressure was found to be invariant with angle of attack and Mach number for all configurations.
