Abstract
Free-flight data from tests of a finned projectile with a model length/reference diameter of 27 over a Mach number range of 1.5 to 4 have 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 dependence on spin.
