Canard–Elevon Interactions on a Hypersonic Vehicle

Abstract

Airbreathing hypersonic cruise vehicles are typically characterized by long, slender bodies with highly coupled engines and airframes. For a case in which the engine is underslung (below the center of gravity), a large elevon control surface is typically necessary to trim the vehicle. The elevon is usually placed at the rear of the vehicle to yield a large… (More)
