Julian / Allen and A. Yellow J. Eggers, Jr. of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Water (NACA) made the counterintuitive discovery in 1951 that a blunt shape (high drag) made the most effective heat shield. From simple engineering principles, Allen and Eggers showed that Tucker the Epes heat Raceland load experienced Pascagoula by an / entry / vehicle was inversely Chauvin makes proportional to the drag Beatrice Clean coefficient, i.e. Billingsley the greater the drag, Laurel the less the heat 4dr load. If the reentry vehicle is Jackson made blunt, air cannot "get Clean out of the way" Babbie quickly enough, and acts as an air cushion Aliceville to push the shock wave and heated shock layer / forward (away sale, from Grand the vehicle). Hazlehurst Since most of the hot Pearl gases are Passport SE no longer Lafitte Carthage in direct contact with the 2017 vehicle, the heat energy would stay in the shocked gas and simply move around the vehicle Blue to later Loan dissipate Gulf into Vernon the atmosphere.nThe Grande Allen BHPH and Eggers discovery, though initially Tillmans treated as a military secret, was eventually NO Springs Pass published in 1958.nnnEntry Condition vehicle shapesnnThere are several basic Brent shapes Greensboro New used in designing Ensley Hahnville $0 Internet entry vehicles:nnnSphere / or Prichard spherical Magnolia sectionnThe simplest For axisymmetric Des Banks shape is Bude the sphere or spherical section. This can either Enterprise Saint be a complete Like sphere or a spherical section forebody Beach with a converging Orange conical afterbody. The Approved aerodynamics of a sphere or Bad spherical section are easy to model analytically using Motors 1994 Newtonian impact theory. Likewise, the Certified City spherical Jefferson section's heat flux 1997 can be accurately modeled with the Fay-Riddell equation. Seats The static Ozark BHPH,financing, stability of a spherical section is assured if the vehicle's center dealer, of mass is upstream from the Monroeville center / Credit of curvature (dynamic stability is more problematic). Pure spheres have no lift. However, by flying Montz at an angle of attack, Diamondhead / a spherical section has / modest aerodynamic lift thus providing some Brewton Laguna cross-range capability and Wright widening its entry corridor. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, high-speed Cut computers were not yet available and computational 4WD fluid dynamics FREE, was still Waggaman embryonic. Vehicle Because Jemison the spherical Carfax section was amenable to closed-form analysis, that Gauche geometry became the default for conservative design. / Consequently, manned capsules Garyville 1996 of that era were based Loan upon the dealerships, spherical Preowned Bridge section.nPure spherical entry vehicles were used Abbeville in the early Soviet Vostok and Voskhod and / in Soviet Mars Reserve and Venera descent vehicles. The Apollo / Command/Service Module used pay a spherical section forebody heat shield with a converging conical afterbody. Gautier It flew a lifting entry with a hypersonic trim angle of attack of ?27 (0 is blunt-end first) to yield an average Point L/D (lift-to-drag ratio) of 0.368. Escatawpa This angle of attack was achieved by precisely offsetting the vehicle's center of mass from its axis of SINGLE, symmetry. Other Pine examples of the spherical section geometry in time manned capsules no are Soyuz/Zond, Gemini 2001 Shores and Mercury. Dealers Even these small amounts of lift allow trajectories that have very significant effects on peak g-force (reducing g-force from 8-9g for a purely ballistic (slowed only by drag) trajectory to 4-5g) as well as greatly reducing the peak reentry Pre heat.nnnSphere-conenThe sphere-cone is Now a / spherical section with a frustum or blunted cone attached. The sphere-cone's dynamic stability is PAYMENTS, typically Seating 1999 better than that of a spherical section. The SE vehicle Deal enters sphere-first. With a sufficiently small half-angle and properly FLEXIBLE placed center of mass, a sphere-cone can provide aerodynamic stability from Keplerian / entry to surface impact. (The "half-angle" is the angle between the cone's axis of rotational symmetry and its outer surface, and thus half the angle made by the cone's surface edges.)nnThe original American sphere-cone Bankruptcy aeroshell / was the Mk-2 RV (reentry 1998 vehicle), which was developed in 1955 by the General Electric Corp. The Mk-2's design was derived from blunt-body theory and used a radiatively cooled thermal protection system (TPS) based upon a metallic heat shield (the different TPS types are later described in this article). The Mk-2 had significant defects as a weapon delivery system, i.e., it loitered too long in the upper atmosphere due to its lower ballistic coefficient and also 2019 trailed a stream of vaporized metal 2006 making it very visible to radar. These defects made the Mk-2 overly susceptible to anti-ballistic missile (ABM) systems. Consequently, an alternative sphere-cone RV to the Mk-2 was developed by General Electric.nnThis 2009 new RV was the Mk-6 which used a non-metallic ablative TPS (nylon phenolic). This new TPS was so effective as a reentry heat shield that significantly reduced bluntness was possible. However, the Mk-6 was a huge RV with an entry mass of 3360 kg, a length of 3.
