Abstract:

This report is intended to be a users manual for a computer program called AERODSN, which estimates the stability coefficients of typical missile configurations with wings or tail fins or both. The Mach range is from zero to approximately 4.0. The roll orientation is zero plus configuration. Wings and tails must be in line. Control deflections are allowed. A limited amount of body alone experimental data is included ogive cylinder or cone cylinder however, body alone tables can be input if desired. A conical boattail segment can be added. This program does not predict drag. Static stability and damping derivatives at zero angle of attack are predicted. Author
