Abstract : Static pressure distribution and boundary-layer profiles were obtained on a 0.04-scale model of the Saturn V vehicle at Mach numbers from 0.60 to 1.45. The Reynolds number based on the model diameter varied from 3.3 to 6.0 million. Unsteady pressures were also measured over the full Mach number range; however, these data are not presented in this report. Protuberances on the model affected local static pressures, but did not alter the overall distribution significantly.

Navier-Stokes based Unsteady Aerodynamic Computations of Launch Vehicles undergoing Forced Coupled Oscillations
TLDR
A procedure is presented to accurately model transient motions of launch vehicles associated with complex flow conditions, including rigid-body transient motions in both the longitudinal and lateral directions, which are typically encountered during launch vehicle ascent. Expand
