The damping in roll of rocket-powered test vehicles having rectangular wings with NACA 65-006 and symmetrical double-wedge airfoil sections of aspect ratio 4.5

Description: Report presenting a free-flight investigation of two rocket-powered model configurations to determine the damping in roll. The model had rectangular wings of 4.5 aspect ratio and were the same except for the airfoil sections.Results regarding rolling velocity and total-drag coefficient are provided.

Use of an aerodynamically pulsed all-movable horizontal tail to obtain longitudinal characteristics of rocket-powered models in free flight and some initial results from an arrow-wing-body-tail configuration

Description: Report presenting the application of an aerodynamically pulsed horizontal tail to determine experimentally the longitudinal aerodynamic characteristics of a rocket-powered model in free flight. Results regarding time history, lift and drag, and tail effectiveness and downwash are provided.

Rocket-powered model investigation of lift, drag, and stability of a body-tail configuration at Mach numbers from 0.8 to 2.3 and angles of attack between plus or minus 6.5 degrees

Description: Report presenting testing of a configuration with a body of fineness ratio 16.6, an unswept horizontal tail of aspect ratio 2.7, and a highly swept vertical tail, which were aeropulsed continuously in pitch during free flight with and without a sustainer rocket motor operating. Results regarding the pitching response, cross coupling, sustainer motor, angle of attack at zero normal force and tail flip, model aerodynamic center, induced jet effect are provided.

Some effects of fuselage interference, wing interference, and sweepback on the damping in roll of untapered wings as determined by techniques employing rocket-propelled vehicles

Description: Report presenting an experimental investigation utilizing rocket propelled vehicles in free flight to determine some effects of fuselage interference, wing interference, and sweepback on the damping-in-roll characteristics of untapered wings with an aspect ratio of 3.7 and NACA 65A009 airfoil sections between a range of Mach numbers.
