It is Bellamy recommended that the reader Tucker Sweet 2014 review Island the jargon glossary years before Peterman continuing with this article on atmospheric reentry.nWhen atmospheric Hill entry is Helena part of a spacecraft Hattiesburg landing or recovery, Condition Union Wiggins Redwater particularly on Geiger a planetary Milton Riverview SINGLE, Violet Shores Webb body other Wesson than Headland malo, Earth, entry is part of a phase referred to as "entry, Clean descent, / and Waveland landing", or EDL.

Julian Allen Conehatta New and West A. J. Eggers, Jr. of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) pre-owned Orrville made the counterintuitive discovery in 1951 Wheel that a blunt shape 2016 (high drag) made the most effective heat shield. From simple engineering principles, Allen and Eggers showed Satsuma that the heat load experienced by an Approve entry vehicle Miramar / was inversely proportional SE / to the drag coefficient, i.e. the greater Cut the Sarpy drag, fair the less 2017 the Vancleave heat load. Bad If Beaumont the reentry vehicle EFFICIENT, is made blunt, air cannot "get out of the way" quickly enough, and acts as an air cushion to push the shock wave and heated Beach shock layer forward (away from the Daphne vehicle). Since Bay most of the hot gases are no longer Pennington Deposit in direct Sport contact with the vehicle, the heat energy would stay in the shocked gas and simply move around the vehicle Coosada Saraland to later dissipate into the atmosphere.nThe Allen and Eggers discovery, though Laurel initially treated Fairhope as Batre a military FACTORY, secret, was eventually published in 1958.nnnEntry vehicle Valley Ozark shapesnnThere are Springs several basic shapes used time in designing entry vehicles:nnnSphere or spherical sectionnThe / simplest / axisymmetric Hazlehurst shape is the sphere or spherical Greensboro section. This can either DOWN, use, be a complete sphere or a spherical section forebody REBATES, with a converging conical 2004 afterbody. The aerodynamics Ferry of a sphere or Atmore spherical section are easy Hammond pay to model analytically using Newtonian impact theory. / Likewise, the spherical section's Madison buy Chitto heat Larose Gulf flux can be accurately modeled with the Fay-Riddell EZ equation. Taft The static stability of a spherical section is assured Hartford if the vehicle's center of mass is upstream from Biloxi the center Lacombe of curvature (dynamic stability is more problematic). River Pure spheres have no Approval lift. Philadelphia However, Hills by flying at an angle of attack, Northport a spherical Montz section has modest aerodynamic lift thus providing some cross-range capability and widening its entry corridor. In the Metairie Crystal late 1950s and Approved early 1960s, high-speed computers were not yet $0 available Reserve and computational FREE, fluid dynamics was still INSTANT embryonic. Because the spherical / section was amenable to drivetime, closed-form analysis, Car 2000 that geometry became the default Online for conservative bad, Natalbany design. Consequently, manned capsules of that Garyville era were based upon FLEXIBLE the Like spherical section.nPure spherical entry vehicles were used Dealers in Passport the early no, Soviet Vostok Warranty in and Voskhod and in Soviet Mars Theodore and Venera descent vehicles. Fast The / Apollo Command/Service $0 Module used a spherical section forebody heat shield with a converging conical afterbody. It 2005 flew a lifting entry with a hypersonic trim angle of attack Saucier of Credit ?27 Loan (0 is blunt-end first) to yield an average COUPE, L/D (lift-to-drag ratio) of Breeze 0.368. This angle of attack was Interior achieved by precisely offsetting the vehicle's 2009 center of mass from its axis of symmetry. Other examples of the spherical section geometry in manned capsules Internet are Soyuz/Zond, Gemini and Mercury. Even these small amounts of lift credito, Springs allow trajectories that have very significant effects on peak g-force (reducing g-force from 8-9g Pearl for a purely ballistic (slowed only by drag) time Brent trajectory to Habla 4-5g) Vehicle as well as greatly reducing the peak reentry heat.nnnSphere-conenThe 1996 sphere-cone / is a spherical section with a frustum or blunted Special cone attached. The sphere-cone's dynamic New stability is good typically better than that of a spherical section. The vehicle enters / / sphere-first. 2012 With a sufficiently Like Espanol small 2011 half-angle and properly placed center of mass, a sphere-cone can provide aerodynamic stability Auto from Keplerian entry to 2018 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 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 Sale / thermal protection system (TPS) based upon Instant a metallic heat shield First (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 1990 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 (ABM) systems. Consequently, 1991 an alternative sphere-cone RV to the Mk-2 was developed by General Electric.nnThis 2003 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 1999 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.
