Description

  • Content Description: Report presenting a study of rocket-powered models at transonic speeds to determine the effect on the zero-lift drag coefficient of an indented fuselage modification and a thickened wing-root modification of a swept-wing airplane configuration. Results regarding the variation of drag coefficient with Mach number, effect of wing root thickening, and wing-plus-interference drag coefficients for the tested models are provided.
