An analysis is given for interpreting results of dynamic tests of a model investigated at full-scale Mach number in terms of the corresponding full-scale body. This analysis shows that dynamic similarity for such a condition can be closely approximated although the effect of gravity is not to scale. Thus an error is introduced which, however, should be small if the time period of model action is short.
