Drag measurements on a 1/6-scale, finless, sting-mounted NACA RM-10 missile in flight at Mach numbers from 1.1 to 4.04 showing some Reynolds number and heating effects
Description: Report discussing a finless NACA RM-10 missile string-mounted on a parent body to determine the total drag, base drag, and wall temperature at peak Mach number 4.04. The total- and base-drag measurements were well-correlated with wind tunnel results and calculations made by using Love's method. The existence of considerable regions of laminar flow on the body during the flight were observed.
