Abstract:

Experimental aerodynamic investigations were conducted at the AEDC 16-foot Transonic Wind Tunnel to determine longitudinal stability characteristics of a long slender rocket configuration with simulated jet plume. The effect of jet plume on rocket aerodynamics is given over an angle of attack range from -11 to 11 degrees at Mach numbers from 0.2 to 1.5. Plume simulator chamber pressure varied from 0 to 600 psia. Individual cruciform fin aerodynamic loads are also shown over the same ranges. Author
