Zero-lift drag of a large fuselage cavity and a partially submerged store on a 52.5 degree sweptback-wing-body configuration as determined from free-flight tests at Mach numbers of 0.7 to 1.53
Description: Report presenting a free-flight investigation of a rocket-propelled model at a range of Mach numbers from 0.7 to 1.53 to determine the drag at zero lift of a configuration with a large fuselage cavity and partially submerged store. Testing was performed out of a desire to determine if large stores can be attached to aircraft wings without negatively affecting the aerodynamic properties. Results regarding total drag and pressure drag are provided.
