Abstract:

This document contains a compilation of aerodynamic data for the Martin Generalized Research Model, which is a composite of several body, wing, and tail fin configurations typical of missile applications. The model variations included five body configurations, three wing configurations at various body locations, and 15 tail fin configurations. Static stability and tail fin loads data are presented in tabulated and plotted form for a Mach number range from 0.20 to 4.63 over an angle-of-attack range from -6 to 60 deg and a sideslip angle range from -20 to 20 deg for the body-alone configurations, body-wing configurations, and the body-wing-tail fin configurations. In addition, the tail fin configurations were tested using the reflection plane technique, and the resulting fin loads data are presented for a Mach number range of 0.80 to 2.16 over an angle-of-attack range from 0 to 210 deg. Volume I contains the narrative and selected plotted data.
