Abstract:

Rigid ribbon parachute models with aerodynamic porosities from 82.2 to 128.0 were tested at Mach 3 in freestream and wake flow, both with and without suspension lines, in order to examine the relationship between canopy porosity and shock wave-suspension line interactions. Shadowgraph pictures were obtained for configurations with various aerodynamic porosities. Author
