Experimental effects of propulsive jets and afterbody configurations on the zero-lift drag of bodies of revolution at a Mach number of 1.59

April 22, 1954

The present investigation was made at a free-stream Mach number of 1.59 to compare the afterbody drags to a series of conical boattailed models at zero angle of attack. Afterbody drags were obtained for both the power-off and the power-on conditions. Power-on drags were obtained as a function of afterbody fineness ratio, jet pressure ratio and divergence, and jet Mach number.
