Modeling results and data are presented for a chemically reacting  ow from a thrusting Atlas II rocket at low altitudes. High spatial resolution imagery and spectra have been obtained for a kerosene/liquid oxygen multinozzle plume at altitudes in the continuum  ow regime. A numerical solution for a three-dimensional plume  ow from the Atlas rocket engine is obtained using two different Navier–Stokes computational  uid dynamics codes. The in uence of the  ow near the rocket body on the… CONTINUE READING
