Aerodynamics of re-entry vehicles at real values of Reynolds numbers

Aerodynamics of re-entry vehicles at real values of Reynolds numbers Results of an experimental study of aerodynamic characteristics of models of two hypersonic re-entry vehicles (ARES-H aerospace demonstrator proposed by EADS-ST and EXPERT re-entry capsule proposed by ESA ESTEC) are presented. The experiments were performed in a new wind tunnel AT-303 at ITAM SB RAS in the range of free-stream Mach numbers M = 10–18 at real values of Reynolds numbers. The test results and specific features of wind-tunnel tests in conical nozzles are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Thermophysics and Aeromechanics Springer Journals

Abstract

Results of an experimental study of aerodynamic characteristics of models of two hypersonic re-entry vehicles (ARES-H aerospace demonstrator proposed by EADS-ST and EXPERT re-entry capsule proposed by ESA ESTEC) are presented. The experiments were performed in a new wind tunnel AT-303 at ITAM SB RAS in the range of free-stream Mach numbers M = 10–18 at real values of Reynolds numbers. The test results and specific features of wind-tunnel tests in conical nozzles are discussed.
