Abstract : This report presents empirical methods for predicting the aerodynamic characteristics of slender missile bodies with and without deflected horizontal tails in the following ranges of angle of attack and Mach number: (1) Bodies: Angles to 90 degrees, Mach 0.8 - 1.1; (2) Bodies plus tails: Angles to 60 degrees, Mach 0.8 - 1.1. Several of the methods are applicable to a somewhat higher Mach number. Comparisons between method estimates and experimental data show good agreement. (Author)
