AERODYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF GROUND SUPPORT SYSTEMS

Two reports dealing with the aerodynamic characteristics of ground support systems are presented. The first report 'Aerodynamic Characteristics of a Tubeflight Vehicle Support System' by Robert E. Duffy presents experimental data on an aerodynamic ground-support-system obtained in a moving-wall wind tunnel. The second report 'Jet-Flapped Airfoils in Ground Proximity' by George C. Cooke concerns a study of the subsonic lift characteristics of airfoils in ground proximity with and without trailing-edge jet flaps. This study was restricted to supercritical flow analysis.
