Aerodynamics is the branch of hydrodynamics that deals with the laws of air motion and with the forces acting on the surfaces of streamlined bodies. Aerodynamics generally studies motion with velocities which are far short of the sound velocity ( m/s, km/h).

Get this from a library. Proposed input for determining longitudinal aerodynamic parameters for the space shuttle. [William T Suit; Langley Research Center.]. SUMMARY A control input form to improve the identification of longitudinal aerodynamic parameters for the Space Shuttle, especially at low Mach numbers, has been proposed.

This input combines features of several inputs currently used with the Shuttle to improve the response in angle-of-attack without exceeding pitch rate limits.

Abstract Wind-turdel tests have been conducted in the Langley V/STOL tunnel to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of a large transport aircraft designed to carry the space shuttle. The command language can be input to the VGM code by a UNIX style redirected file, or interactively while the code is executing.

An analysis of the longitudinal aerodynamics of the shuttle. and subsequent landing of Space Transportation System (STS)-1 (). Aeroscience encompasses the engineering specialties of aerodynamics and aerothermodynamics. For the shuttle, each specialty was primarily associated with analysis of flight through the Earth’s atmosphere.

Aerodynamics involves the study of local pressures generated over. The longitudinal aerodynamic parameters were determined from selected runs for the Columbia and Challenger Shuttle vehicles and these results will presented. This paper will supplement the existing flight-derived parameter data base by adding both longitudinal and lateral results using flight test data from the Space Shuttle Discovery.

These. Further, Peyada and Ghosh (11) proposed a new method christened the Neural-Gauss-Newton (NGN) method to estimate parameters. It can capture nonlinear aerodynamics and estimate aerodynamic. Several areas of Space Shuttle technology were addressed including aerothermal environment, thermal protection, measurement and analysis, Shuttle carrier aerodynamics, entry analysis of the STS Findings The real flight data of longitudinal and lateral-directional motion have been considered to estimate their respective aerodynamic parameters using the proposed methodology.

Volume 1M: Orbiter vehicle STS-1". A six-degree-of-freedom simulation analysis was conducted to examine the effects of longitudinal static aerodynamic stability and control uncertainties on the performance of the space shuttle.

The paper presents a method to identify aerodynamic parameters from flight-test data, determine the uncertainty in the identified parameters, and estimate the model-form uncertainties in the aerodynamic model.

This information is required for simulations designed to estimate the reliability of the system. Abstract. This chapter studies the effects of the body roll on vehicle handling dynamics.

Following the explanations of the roll mechanism, the possible effects of roll stiffness, transversal load transfer, camber change, roll steer, and suspension lateral compliance on the steady state handling characteristics of the vehicle are examined.

Steel structure. For the structure, steel cables are assumed to be formed into longerons (average thickness Δr L) and circular bands (average thickness Δr B). The value of Δr L required is.

Δr L = Rρ o /2T. where R is the cylinder radius, ρ o the atmospheric pressure and T the tension. For land density ρ L and depth x L, and bands of density ρ F, the total equivalent internal pressure. Several ways for obtaining aerodynamic parameters of an aircraft from flight data are presented with the emphasis on present problem areas.

The paper starts with a brief description of data analysis from steady measurements. Then, a concept of system identification applied to aircraft is introduced with a discussion of various steps in this.

Design example: Space Shuttle. The Space Shuttle thermal protection system was based on the use of surface materials with a high temperature capability, in combination with an underlying thermal insulation to reduce heat conduction to the interior of the vehicle.

The heat from the aerodynamic heating was thereby radiated back into space. predictive capability. Ordinary least-squares parameter estimation is used to identify model parameters. This method has been successfully applied in several applications using ight-test data.8,9 10 This modeling method currently must be applied to each aircraft to determine the appropriate model structure and parameter estimates.
