Abstract:

The symposium addressed many aspects of the aerodynamic design and performance of missiles for the subsonic through to the hypersonic flight regimes and reviews were included covering the stability and control of tactical missiles and the progress made in the field of store carriage and release. 31 papers were presented in seven sessions. Topics considered in the symposium were computational methods and validation, empirical tools and experimental techniques, flow separation and interference effects, unconventional shapes and projectiles, propulsion and base flow, aerothermodynamics and hypersonics. The volume includes all the unclassified papers presented at the symposium together with a transcript of the discussion which took place at the conclusion of the meeting.
