Abstract:

A computer program is developed to numerically model the in-depth transient response and shape history of an ablating nosetip subjected to a reentry environment. The generality of the input also allows the user to conveniently analyze the boundary layer, shape change and in-depth response of many materials in a variety of test facilities. The computer code is capable of handling nosetips of shell or plug geometries. The boundary layer and heat transfer distribution are modeled for a variety of environments including hydrometer erosion. In addition, inviscid flow and heat transfer distributions for many types of blunt bodies in hypersonic flow can be readily calculated.
