Description

Report presenting an investigation of a configuration of a body of fineness ratio 16.9, an unswept wing of aspect ratio 3, and a taper ratio of 0.4, and incline tail surfaces who was aeropulsed continuously in pitch during free flight with and without a sustainer rocket motor operating. A range of Mach numbers from 0.8 to 2.1 was tested. Results regarding drag, normal force and pitching moment, flow conditions at the horizontal tail, buffeting and model vibrations, and cross coupling are provided.
