Julian Allen and A. 1990 J. Eggers, Jr. of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) made the counterintuitive Wade Camden discovery Breeze in Lumberton 1951 that a blunt shape (high drag) made the Bad most effective heat shield. From simple engineering Pensacola principles, fair Allen and Fort Eggers showed that Barataria the heat load experienced by an entry vehicle was inversely Luverne / proportional EFFICIENT, Springfield to the drag coefficient, 2005 i.e. the greater the drag, Stonewall the less Haven Springs the heat load.

Dealer Since most of the hot / gases Freeport are no longer in direct Bogue Off Dealers contact with the vehicle, the heat energy would Wiggins stay Hills in the shocked Noxapater gas and simply Credit move around the vehicle to later / dissipate into the atmosphere.nThe Allen and Eggers in discovery, though initially treated as a military secret, was eventually published in 1958.nnnEntry Marion vehicle shapesnnThere are several 2008 1991 basic shapes used in designing entry vehicles:nnnSphere Autaugaville or Like spherical sectionnThe simplest axisymmetric shape is the Foley / / sphere or spherical section. This can either be Jackson a complete sphere or a spherical section forebody BHPH,financing, with a converging conical Group 1995 afterbody. The aerodynamics of a sphere or spherical section Terrytown are easy to model analytically Tucker using Newtonian Rose impact theory. Likewise, the spherical section's heat flux can be accurately Boutte malo, Louisville modeled with the Fay-Riddell PAYMENTS, equation. Crestview 2004 The static 1992 stability Montz of a spherical section is assured if sale, the vehicle's center of mass is upstream from the center of curvature (dynamic stability Sale West is more problematic). Pure / spheres have no lift. However, used by flying at an angle of attack, a spherical section has modest aerodynamic lift thus providing City some cross-range capability and widening its entry corridor. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, high-speed computers 2011 were not yet available and computational fluid dynamics was still embryonic. Because the spherical section was amenable Ridge to Check closed-form analysis, that geometry Atmore Big years became Molino the default for conservative here, design. Consequently, / manned capsules of that Bay era were based upon the spherical section.nPure Reserve spherical entry vehicles were used in the early all Soviet Vostok and Voskhod Clear and in Soviet Mars / and Venera descent vehicles. The Apollo Command/Service REBATES, Module used a spherical section forebody heat shield with BEACON, a converging Blountstown conical afterbody. It flew a lifting entry with Cut a hypersonic Saucier trim angle INSTANT of attack of ?27 (0 is FUEL blunt-end Fast Bay first) to yield an average L/D (lift-to-drag ratio) of 0.368. This angle of attack was achieved by precisely offsetting Miles the vehicle's center of mass from its axis of Brewton symmetry. Other examples of the spherical section / geometry Tillmans in manned capsules are Brookhaven Soyuz/Zond, Gemini Pine and Mercury. Even these small amounts of mal, lift allow / Financing trajectories that have very significant effects on peak g-force (reducing g-force Wheels from 8-9g for a purely MILES, ballistic (slowed only by drag) trajectory to 4-5g) as well as greatly reducing the peak reentry heat.nnnSphere-conenThe sphere-cone is a spherical section with a frustum or blunted cone EZ attached. The sphere-cone's credit dynamic stability is typically 2000 better than Seating that of a spherical section. / CREDIT, The vehicle enters sphere-first. With Loan a sufficiently small half-angle and properly placed center of mass, a sphere-cone can provide drive aerodynamic / stability from Keplerian entry to surface impact. (The MONEY, "half-angle" is the angle between time the cone's axis of rotational symmetry and its outer surface, and 1994 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 Loans Mk-2's Quick Clean design was derived from blunt-body theory and used a radiatively cooled thermal protection Bankruptcy 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 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, 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.
