Yes. Howsabout re-posting your question here so everybody can participate? There are a lot of smart folks here, many of whom I'm sure would have valuable contributions.

Anyone got information on lowering the supersonic drag on a rocket?

I know about Von Kaarman nosecones.

There is a lot of disagreement about low supersonic drag fin planforms though. Anyone got information on low drag fins?

Thanks!

GL-P, do you have a copy of MIL-HDBK-762(MI) DESIGN OF AERODYNAMICALLY STABILIZED FREE ROCKETS? It has a lot of info on such subjects. It's on the web somewhere.

Yup. That's the site I was going to send him to also. Running behind on everything today (stinkin' meetings). Thanks for getting that out there.

GL-P: In particular, look at the section on Wave Drag. Then come back here and ask more questions.
