A method for calculating the aerodynamic loading on a wing in combination with a body is presented. Calculated results are compared with experimentally measured data for two wing-body configurations throughout a range of Mach number up to 1.0. The magnitude and the distribution of panwise loading of the calculated data are generally in good agreement with the experimental data.
