Abstract:

A brief non-mathematical introduction to the subject of Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD, is given. Various approximations to the full flow equations are described and their suitability for modelling the aerodynamics of missiles is discussed. A number of CFD codes available in the UK which are applicable to missile aerodynamics are considered. Each code is described briefly and comparisons between prediction and measurement are shown. Keywords Great Britain, Navier stokes equations, Grids, Missile, Configurations.
