This report covers water tunnel tests of a 2" diameter model of a 4.5" rocket projectile (designated in the laboratory as projectile number ND-12) with a fin tail and with the tail replaced by a spinner tube. The purpose of the tests was to determine the magnitude of the hydrodynamic forces acting on the body as functions of its orientation with respect to the direction of motion, and to determine the location of the point of application of those forces.
