On the basis of the assumption that the external stores are small compared with the wing, an approximate method has been developed for estimation of two-dimensional apparent masses for the cross-flow sections of wing-store combinations. The results obtained may be applicable to the analysis of the effects of the stores on the aerodynamic stability derivatives in slender-body theory. The theory has also been applied to estimate the rolling moment due to sideslip for high-wing configurations. The presented results are in agreement with those of other investigations.
