Description

  • Content Description: "Investigations in the Langley 20-foot free-spinning tunnel of models of five jettisonable nose sections have shown that the airplane nose sections are inherently unstable but can be stabilized by the addition of suitable fins. An empirical criterion has been developed which indicates the fin area required for stabilizing an airplane jettisonable nose section" (p. 1).
