Abstract:

The results of transonic wind tunnel tests in which the effects of external stores on the aerodynamic characteristics of the F-15 aircraft were determined are presented and discussed. The analysis includes evaluations of the incremental drag rise, the incremental changes in static margin, and the lateral-directional derivatives associated with the various store configurations. Wind tunnel coefficient data for several baseline configurations are also presented. Data are presented for Mach numbers ranging from 0.6 to 1.3 at angles of attack from -4 to 20 deg at zero-deg sideslip angle, and for sideslip angles from -4 to 10 deg at angles of attack of 0, 10, 15, and 20 deg.
