Bimonthly progress rept. no. 1, 8 Apr-8 June 60, by Edmond F. E. Zeijdel. 11 July 60, 3p. (Contract NOw 60-0726-c; Continuation of Contract NOa(s) 59-6135-c) Unclassified report DESCRIPTORS: (*Guided missiles, *F LUTTER, Mathematical analysis, Differential equations, Partial differential equations, *Supersonics, Aerodynamics, Wings.) The primary objective of this research program is to determine the unsteady aerodynamic forces on slender supersonic missiles. The unsteady aerodynamic forces will be determined on the basis of quasi-slender body theory and particular emphasis will be placed on the case of wing bending. This work is a continuation of work completed under BuAer Contract NOas 59-6135-c (AD-242 907). During this report period, initial efforts were made to give an example which illustrates the theory developed under the previous contract. (Author)
