Abstract:

Transonic wind tunnel tests have been conducted on a 18th scale model of a Mk82 bomb. The tests covered an incidence range of -2 deg to 28 deg and a Mach number range of 0.95 to 1.20 for roll angles between -45 deg and 45 deg. The tests indicated that the model exhibited static longitudinal stability for all conditions except at low Mach numbers and incidences greater than about 20 deg. Author
