Abstract:

Wind tunnel tests were conducted in a 16 ft. transonic tunnel, a supersonic tunnel, A and a trisonic tunnel to establish a bank of systematic data for body and body-tail configurations at high angles of attack. The configurations were tested at Mach numbers between 0.8 and 3.0, angles of attack from -2 to 45 degrees, and roll angles from 0 to 90 degrees. The aerodynamic characteristics were obtained for the total configuration as well as each of the four undeflected tail fins.
