It is performed and presented an experimental and numerical investigation over the flow patterns around the forebody section of a microsatellite launch vehicle in development at Instituto de Aeronautica e Espaco. The experimental investigation with a VLM-1 model in 1:50 scale is carried out at the Brazilian Pilot Transonic Wind Tunnel, located in the Aerodynamics Division of the mentioned Institute, using the classical schlieren flow visualization technique. Schlieren images are obtained for… 


Fifty Years of Shock-Wave/Boundary-Layer Interaction Research: What Next?
Because of their ubiquitous presence in high-speed flight and their impact on vehicle and component performance, shock-wave/boundary-layer interactions have been studied for about 50 years. Despite
Historical review and future perspectives for Pilot Transonic Wind Tunnel of IAE
The Pilot Transonic Wind Tunnel of Institute of Aeronautics and Space (PTT Pilot Transonic Wind Tunnel) is an important result of a tremendous effort to install a high speed wind tunnel complex (TTS
Numerical Study on Transitional Flows Using a Correlation-Based Transition Model
A correlation-based transition model is assessed against distinct test cases. The configurations include a zero-pressure-gradient flat plate, a single-element aeronautical airfoil, a multielement
Correlation-Based Transition Modeling for Unstructured Parallelized Computational Fluid Dynamics Codes
The main goal of the present paper is to publish the full model and release it to the research community so that it can continue to be further validated and possibly extended or improved.
Optimum transonic wind tunnel
The optimum facility to complement existing high Reynolds number transonic wind tunnels is discussed. It is proposed that the facility be cryogenic, have a total pressure of five atmospheres or less,
