Abstract : A procedure was derived for theoretically predicting the static aerodynamic characteristics (except rolling moment) of low-aspect-ratio configurations. This procedure is based on existing linear and nonlinear theories with some empirical modifications and was programmed for the IBM 7090 computer so that the geometric characteristics of the configuration are the only required inputs. Correlation of theoretical and experimental results indicates that the procedure is applicable at Mach numbers up to 3.0, angle of attack up to 20 degrees and tail deflection angles up to 10 degrees.
