STABILITY DERIVATIVES FOR BODIES OF REVOLUTION AT SUBSONIC SPEEDS

A theory was developed for subonic flow past slowly oscillating pointed bodies of revolution. By properly expanding the first- order velocity potential, correction terms to slender-body theory could be derived which account for thickness and compressibility effects. The numerical results show good agreement between Revell's second-order slender-body theory and the present theory for the static stability derivatives of parabolic spindles.
