The computation of the dynamic derivatives is presented for a sub-orbital vehicle in transonic and supersonic flow regimes. The dynamic derivatives are calculated by analyzing the aerodynamic response of a three-dimensional model to small amplitude forced oscillations. Steady and unsteady flow solutions are achieved with a time-dependent Navier Stokes solver. A moving grid technique is adopted to simulate the forced oscillations of the model. An experimental campaign is carried out within the… CONTINUE READING
