An improved semiempirical method for calculating aerodynamics of missiles with noncircular bodies by Frank G Moore( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An improved method has been developed to compute aerodynamics of noncircular cross section shapes. The improved method is based on extending current state of the art methods for computing aerodynamics of noncircular wing-body shapes based on circular wing-body methods. Specific additions to the state of the art methods presently in use include extensions to a broader class of cross section bodies and to a higher angle of attack (AOA); extensions to allow improved accuracy at low cross flow Mach number and to allow body cross section shape to impact the critical cross flow Reynolds number; and a method to treat wing-body interference factor corrections as a function of body geometry, Mach number, and AOA. The new methods were applied to a broad class of noncircular body alone and wing body configurations for which wind tunnel data were available. In general, results for normal force, axial force and center of pressure were quite good over the Mach number and AOA range where data was available. This included Mach numbers as low as 0.3 and as high as 14 and AOAs to 60 degrees
Refinements in the aeroprediction code based on recent wind tunnel data by Frank G Moore( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1998 (AP98) and prior versions of the aeroprediction code are based primarily on slender body and perturbation theories at low angle of attack and empirical constants that represent the nonlinear aerodynamics as a function of angle of attack, Mach number, aspect and taper ratio, and other missile geometric parameters. The primary data base upon which these empirical nonlinear constants were derived was based on the NASA/Tri-Service component data base taken in the 1970s. This data base was limited in body radius to wing semispan plus body radius ratios (r/s) of 0.5. A more recent data base taken by NASA and the former McDonnell Douglas Corporation, investigated other values of the parameter r/s of 0.25, 0.33 and 0.5. As a result of this new data base, the empirical constants in the AP98 were fine-tuned. This fine-tuning has shown the average normal force coefficient errors to be reduced by anywhere from 10 percent to over 40 percent on various missile configurations. The largest reductions in error were for configurations where the AP98 average accuracy was the worst. These new improved empirical constants will be a part of the next planned release of the aeroprediction code in 2002 (AP02). The AP98 average error on normal force coefficient of +/- 10 percent will therefore be somewhat better for the AP02
