Abstract:

The laminar base flow analysis of Denison, King, and Baum at Electro-Optical Systems, Inc. was used to calculate the flow behind conical re-entry bodies. The method of Hansen was used to obtain the equilibrium properties of air and a perfect gas model was used to simulate the frozen air properties. The two air models resulted in a difference in base recirculation volume by as much as 150 for a typical re-entry situation. Author
