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… CONTINUE READING
