Abstract:

The BRL has recently applied the ABRES Shape Change Code ASCC80 to predict the unsteady thermal response of high velocity projectile nose configurations due to aerodynamic heating. The initial application of the ASCC80 code revealed several deficiencies as applied to slender shapes of interest for Army shell. This report describes the modifications carried out that improve the capabilities of the code to address problems for Army shell. Test cases and detailed instructions are provided which describe the input data required to run the code.
