Abstract:

A wind tunnel test was conducted to investigate the flow-field characteristics in the vicinity of the midwing and inboard weapon stations of the F-16 aircraft. Aerodynamic coefficients were measured on the BLU-27BB, GBU- 8, and MK-82SE stores placed at various locations in the aircraft flow field. Captive-separation trajectory data were obtained on the GBU-8 and MK-82SE stores. Data were acquired at Mach numbers from 0.4 to 1.2 for various weapons loading configurations of the F-16. Other variables included aircraft angles of attack from 0 to 10 deg and wing leading-edge-flap deflection angles of 0, 4, and 15 deg.
