Abstract:

Experiments on pressure distribution and heat transfer on a grid simulating a parachute cloth were performed. The porosity of the grid was 25. A pressurized wind-tunnel served as the flow facility. The average approach of the flow was 134 feet per second. The pressure ratio PupPdown was considered as the main variable and varied from around 11 to 1.45. A transient energy balance was used to calculate local heat transfer.
