Automated Euler and Navier-Stokes Database Generation for a Glide-Back Booster
AeroDB is a database generation framework that is used to compute thousands of Euler and Navier-Stokes solutions for a 2nd generation glide-back booster in one week using the NASA Information Power Grid. Process automation and web-based access is used to greatly simplify and reduce the user workload. The solutions are validated with experimental data, and stability derivatives are computed using a monotone cubic-spline procedure. Flow visualization and three-dimensional surface plots are used to interpret and characterize the nature of computed flow fields.
