Although a simple cone geometry  is sometimes used, a more common  pointed forebody is a tangent ogive or its variation. As discussed by Ericsson and Reding [1], an object with a slender forebody, depending upon its attitude in pitch, exhibits four distinctly different types of flow patterns as shown in Figure 1-1. At low angles of attack the flow field is usually symmetric and essentially attached.  As the pitch angle increases the streamlines are  swept downstream from the windward to the leeward side of the body symmetrically about the pitch plane.  Figure 1-1.

The  results clearly demonstrated a need to vary roll angle in any series of comprehensive  tests.  He  conjectured  that  microscopic  surface  asymmetries at the apex of the body were sufficient to trigger large scale flow asymmetries further downstream. Keener et al. [21] further substantiated Lamont's thoughts on the cause of the side force onset.  His experiments involved measuring the  side force while first rolling his entire model and then rolling the tip alone.  The results,  nearly identical in the  two  tests, support  the  microasymmetry hypothesis.

However, it  appears that too short a nose boom is worse than none at all as a 34% Increase in the side force was recorded with a 0.32 cm nose—boom (Lb/L  =  3.1%).  In fact, the nose—booms  shorter than 7% of the cone length increased the maximum side force while the opposite was true for the nose-booms with Lb/L > 0.07. iii)  Tests with the nose-booms of lengths less than 7% of the cone length exhibited a greater instability of the flow field. Large changes in the side force magnitude and direction with roll orientations were frequent with shorter  booms.  This  several  agrees  with  the  trend  observed  by  investigators in their studies with slender cones. iv) The normal force is relatively insensitive to both the noseboom length and roll orientation. E o r p u s .Tip_wifch.NQse-Boora  i)  A side force reduction of nearly 50% is possible with the addition of a porous tip having a 3.18 cm nose-boom.  i) A side force reduction by at least 88%, and possibly greater, is achievable with an appropriate delta strake.
