Ground‐pressure measurements are presented for fighter aircraft in various maneuvers involving accelerations along the track and perpendicular to it. Complex wave patterns, and so‐called “super‐booms” in which pressure buildups occur, are presented for some representative cases. Results obtained from an array of ground‐measuring stations are correlated with tracking and weather information and with theory. Computed ground‐pressure patterns show good agreement with measurements for some specific… CONTINUE READING
