Aerodynamic Heating in Supersonic and Hypersonic Flows: Advanced Techniques for Drag and Aero-heating Reduction explores the pros and cons of different heat reduction techniques on other characteristics of hypersonic vehicles. The book begins with an introduction of flow feature around the forebody of space vehicles and explains the main parameters on drag force and heat production in this region. The text then discusses the impact of severe heat production on the nose of hypervelocity vehicles, different reduction techniques for aerodynamic heating, and current practical applications for forebody shock control devices. Delivers valuable insight for aerospace engineers, postgraduate students, and researchers.
Presents computational results of different cooling systems for drag and heat reduction around nose cones
Explains mechanisms of drag reduction via mechanical, fluidic, and thermal systems
Provides comprehensive details about the aerodynamics of space vehicles and the different shock features in the forebody of super/hypersonic vehicles
