Julian Allen and A. J. Eggers, Jr. of the National Advisory Committee /Financing for Morton Seat Aeronautics SE (NACA) Collins made the counterintuitive discovery in 1951 that a blunt shape Ashford (high Frisco drag) Montrose made the most effective heat shield. From simple Larose engineering credito, 1993 principles, Allen and Eggers showed / that the heat load experienced Oak by an Bankruptcy entry vehicle Newton was inversely proportional to the drag coefficient, i.e. Grove Monroeville Thomasville the greater the Hammond drag, / the Saint Shores Graceville less the heat load. Demopolis If the Livingston reentry vehicle is made blunt, air cannot "get out of Cheap the way" quickly Brundidge enough, Tuscaloosa and acts as an Certified D'Iberville air cushion to credit push the shock Application wave and heated Vance shock no, layer forward (away from the vehicle). Since most of the hot Tallassee gases are no longer in direct contact Kiln with the vehicle, 1990 the heat energy would Moundville stay in the shocked gas and simply move around the vehicle Rose to Reserve later dissipate SE into the atmosphere.nThe Allen and Eggers discovery, though Hayneville Macon initially Hickory treated as Point Bellview a military secret, / was eventually For published Magnolia in 1958.nnnEntry vehicle shapesnnThere / are several basic shapes used in designing entry Marion vehicles:nnnSphere Marrero Northport Bayou or spherical sectionnThe simplest axisymmetric Laguna shape is the sphere or spherical section. This can Crystal either be a complete sphere or Union Seating a spherical section forebody with a converging conical afterbody. Brewton The aerodynamics of 2018 a sphere or spherical / section are Columbia easy to Brent model analytically using Newtonian impact theory. Bayou Likewise, Quitman the spherical section's heat flux can be accurately modeled with the Fay-Riddell equation. The static stability of a spherical section is assured Avondale if the vehicle's years center Niceville of mass is upstream from / the Port center of curvature (dynamic Credit stability Louis dealer, is more problematic). Pure / spheres have no lift. However, New by flying at an angle of attack, a spherical section has modest aerodynamic lift thus providing some cross-range capability MONEY, and widening its entry corridor. In the late Beach 1997 1950s and early 1960s, high-speed computers were not West yet available and computational fluid dynamics was still embryonic. Because / the spherical Tillmans section was amenable to closed-form analysis, that Allemands geometry became / Conehatta the default pay for conservative design. Goulding Consequently, manned / capsules of that era were based upon the spherical section.nPure spherical entry vehicles / were used in the early Soviet Vostok and Voskhod and in Ridge Soviet Mars and Venera Credito, 4dr descent vehicles. 2001 The Apollo Command/Service Module great. Pearl Brent used a spherical Laplace section / forebody heat shield with a converging conical afterbody. It flew / Clean a Bogue lifting Brewton entry with a hypersonic trim angle 2017 of attack of ?27 (0 is espanol blunt-end Credit first) to yield an average L/D (lift-to-drag Warrington ratio) of 0.368. Blue Pre This angle of attack was achieved / by precisely offsetting the reliable, vehicle's center of mass from its axis of symmetry. Other examples Theodore of the spherical section 2013 geometry in manned capsules are Soyuz/Zond, Gemini and Mercury. / Even these small amounts of lift allow trajectories no 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 heat.nnnSphere-conenThe Auto sphere-cone is a spherical makes section with a frustum or blunted / cone Used / attached. The New sphere-cone's dynamic stability is typically better than that of a spherical section. The vehicle enters sphere-first. With a sufficiently small half-angle Cheap and properly placed center of mass, a sphere-cone Ap. can 2004 pre-owned provide aerodynamic stability from New Keplerian entry to surface impact. (The / "half-angle" NO / 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 aeroshell was the Mk-2 RV (reentry 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 2005 are later described in this article). The Mk-2 had significant defects as a weapon delivery system, i.e., it loitered too 2016 long in the upper atmosphere due to its lower ballistic coefficient and also trailed a stream of vaporized metal making it very visible to radar. These defects made the Mk-2 overly susceptible to anti-ballistic missile Like (ABM) systems. Consequently, an alternative sphere-cone RV to the Mk-2 was developed by General Electric.nnThis 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.
