Free-Flight Longitudinal-Stability Investigation Including Some Effects of Wing Elasticity From Mach Numbers of 0.85 to 1.34 of a Tailless Missile Configuration Having a 45 Degree Sweptback Wing of Aspect Ratio 5.5
Description: Report presenting a free-flight longitudinal-stability investigation between Mach numbers of 0.85 and 1.34 to obtain the aerodynamic characteristics of a long-range, jet-propelled, ground-to-ground missile with a wing of aspect ratio 5.5, 45 degrees of sweepback, and taper ratio 0.4 on a body with a vertical tail. Two models with two different wing materials were flown. Results regarding trimmed flight, pitching flight, and aeroelastic calculations are provided.
