Abstract:

The transonic aerodynamics of a missile body is critical, which dictates the structural design aspect and controllability of the vehicle. ANSYS-FLUENT has been used to investigate the aerodynamic characteristics over a Canard controlled missile configuration for subsonic and transonic Mach numbers ranging from 0.6 to 2. The co-efficient of pressure, shock location, flow separation and reattachment regions have been extracted.
