Flow Field Investigation around Body Tail Projectile
Abstract: The unsteady compressible flow around a 50 mm projectile governed by the Navier-Stocks (NS) equation is numerically solved with a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) method, with the Sub-Grid Scale (SGS) solved by Smagorinsky-Lilly model. The computed results are obtained in supersonic flow regime for a viscous fluid in order to determine the aerodynamic coefficients with different angles of attack. The flow around a body tail projectile was solved as a three-dimensional flow.
