Great Engineering read on directional stability of fins. Yes talks planes but clearly can be put toward auto fins.

Surprised to see this 1979 paper from Nasa pop up on stability of fins, yes on rockets but clearly when scaled it can be applied to other applications.

For the sake of it, I love this story on the history of Fins and their various designs. Lovely history coverage on auto Fins! :metal:
