Dynamika autorotacyjnych zasobników lotniczych

Jerzy Maryniak, Jan Droździel

The mathematical and physical modelling have been presented of rotating objects with fins droped from a carrier. Aerodynamic characteristics were obtained from wind tunnel tests as a function of the incidence angle and the rotational speed. Measurements were made on a rotating model. Exemplary calculations were made for a model of dimensions and weight which could fulfil the parameters of a real object.
