Abstract
Free-flight data from tests of a 27 model length/d finned projectile over a Mach number range of 1.5 to 4 has been reduced to aerodynamic coefficients. Six model configurations varying in planform areas and tab angles were investigated. A summary of the aerodynamic data from these tests at low and high spin rates up to 3500 rad/s is given. Some aerodynamic coefficients exhibited a strong dependency on spin and this was also discussed.
