Abstract:

This paper highlights the role of the model in the overall wind tunnel test program. Depending on the specific task to be achieved i.e. improvement of an existing missile or a new missile development, the cost-effectiveness analysis leads to the best solution in terms of scale of the model number of configurations to be tested degree of likelihood wind tunnel facilities to be used interoperability among different test sites overall test time test time of each subphase. Defining a missile, one of the main fields of investigation regards the determination of the aerodynamic data. JES
