Aerodynamic Performance of Missile Configurations at Transonic Speeds Including the Effects of a Jet Plume
Technical rept. May 1971-Sep 1975
TENNESSEE UNIV SPACE INST TULLAHOMA
Pagination or Media Count:
This report discusses the flow over various missile configurations with and without fins. Attention has been restricted to transonic flight conditions and to slender bodies at small incidence. Various rear-end geometries are treated, including boattail and flare configurations. The effect of plume induced separation is also included so that realistic estimates of the forces on the body can be made. It is shown that the agreement between theory and experiment is adequate for engineering calculations.
