Abstract:

Wind-tunnel tests were conducted using six 0.05-scale stores with various afterbody shapes to investigate the store aerodynamic load characteristics in the flow field of the F-4C aircraft. The store models had a hemispherical nose and a cylindrical midsection with various afterbody shapes. Three store models had cruciform pattern fins on a blunted cone-shaped afterbody. The other three store models had blunted cone, blunted ogive, and cylindrical-shaped afterbodies, respectively. All finned store models were tested in both X and fin orientations. Free-Stream store loads data were also obtained at yaw angles between -6 and 30 deg. All store loads data are presented for Mach numbers from 0.5 to 1.1.
