Abstract : The airship theory as applied to bare flat-based missiles is extended to include compressibility effects. The results are compared with measurements carried out in the N.O.L. aeroballistic wind tunnels at supersonic speeds. Results indicate that wind tunnel results and theoretical results are not inconsistent with each other, provided due allowance is made for viscosity influences and for incompleteness of the computations.
