Hey everyone,

I am working on my thesis in Aerospace Engineering, and am collecting literature right now.

For my research I need to quantify the transonic drag rise for different stores on the F-16, and I am having a hard time finding literature for this. I found the following image, but I can't find the paper it is taken from. I have tried almost everything to find it, maybe someone in here has seen it before and remembers where?

Kind regards.

Roskam's Aircraft Design? I feel like I've seen it, but a LONG time ago

Roskam's Aircraft Design


Yeah this is what I thought! I can't seem to find it though.
First I thought it was from Whitford' Design for Air Combat, can't find it in there either though.

Check out the postings on this thread from 2011. Go all the way through them. They mention a Rand paper !

I studied under Roskam at The university of Kansas. His design series was in development and we were his victims...er...editors.

the font for the graph looks familiar... what year would this be, 80s or late 70s book?
