Wetted area parameter from Figure 3.9 correlates with Kuchemann's tau yielding a geometric relationship to describe the delta planform configurations of different cross-sectional shape. VT Vtotal. tau 0.10 vicinity. Airbreathing space launchers are in the range of 0.18 to 0.20. Rocket-powered hypersonic gliders are in the range of 0.22 to 0.26 tau. A correlating equation provides a means of translating Kuchemann tau into the S parameter, Swet V o66i7. As implied in Figure 3.10, as...
