    Abstract

    This paper discuses about rocket aerodynamic drag prediction methods for optimization of range. Methods presented in this paper could be used as an initial guideline or a quick reference to approximate aerodynamic drag of a rocket. Parameters associated to a rocket's aerodynamic drag can be established in three Distinctive types: wave drag. skin friction drag and base drag, Details on these drag types generated by the various sections of a rocket's body are explained under various speed conditions.
