Summary

An experimental and computational study of a supersonic missile with a slender cylin drical airframe and a divert jet thruster system for attitude control was a co op eration of the French-German Research Institute of Saint-Louis and MBDA LFK. The aerodynamic of a defined missile model with lateral jet was calculated with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods and the same configuration was measured in a shock tube for validation of the numerical procedure. The verified CFD flow field solutions allow an extensive analysis of the jet thruster control effectiveness, the complex fluid interactions of freestream and thruster cross flow and their physical effects on the airframe. It is possible to analyze the change of the pressure contours on the complete airframe or dedicated aero dyn amic surfaces of the missile and therefore the deviations of the missile aero dynamic caused by the lateral jet.
