The basic aerodynamic properties of group

of bodies in a supersonic flow

The collimation effect is shown on a certain range of angles, smaller

fragments are involved in the wake of the leading one. In case of fragments

of the different size the collimation effect shown for smaller bodies b

on a

wider range of angles.

Resistance of the body in the wake is considerably smaller then resistance

of the leading one except for positions where the shock wave of first body

falls on the frontal surface of the backward one.
