- Experimental investigation of aerodynamic forces acting on body of revolution (NACA RM-10 missile) with and without stabilizing fins was conducted at Mach numbers from 1.49 to 1.98 at angles of attack from 0 to 9 degrees and at Reynolds number of approximately 30,000,000. Comparison of experimental lift, drag, and pitching-moment coefficients and center of pressure location for body alone is made with linearized potential theory and a semiempirical method. Results indicate that aerodynamic characteristics were predicted more accurately by semiempirical method than by potential theory. Breakdown of measured drag coefficients into components of friction, pressure, and base-pressure drag is presented for body alone at zero angle of attack.
