Abstract : Aerodynamic interference between an aircraft and wing store is studied by the use of analytical wing, fuselage, and store models. Inviscid flow is assumed and the Gothert transformation is used to correct for compressibility. An elliptic wing is represented by a bound vortex followed by a trailing vortex sheet. The fuselage and store are assumed to be slender bodies and modeled by a series of sources and doublets along their axis of revolution. Aerodynamic interference of the aircraft model is studied by observing the store in captive and free flight modes in the vicinity of the wing and fuselage models. The aerodynamic forces and moments experienced by the store as well as store trajectories are computed. Comparisons are made of store reactions (motion and trajectory) to only the wing model and to the wing and fuselage models combined. (Author)
