Abstract : This paper reviews developments in the field of store carriage and separation. First, the Store Separation Program Plan, a long term effort carried out at NWC, China Lake, is summarized, and then corresponding efforts are reviewed from a wide variety of sources. The recommendations of the NWC study are, with some changes in emphasis, still valid in this rapidly changing technological environment, but especially important is the recommendation of accelerating efforts to apply transonic techniques. European literature suggests a greater application of analytical techniques to this field than corresponding United States literature. There is still a strong requirement for high quality experimental data suitable for rigorous comparisons and critical correlations. (Author)
