Aerodynamic Optimization of the Von Karman Nose Cone for a Supersonic Sounding Rocket
thesisposted on 21.05.2021, 09:08 by Taruansh Singh Qaumi
Nose cone design is very much reliant on the conditions of the rocket’s flight path. The design is dependant on the altitude, velocity profile, materials, and other factors. This report will look at optimizing a rocket nose cone design based on preliminary measurements, aerodynamic factors, and engineering design process. This analysis will be done utilizing ANSYS Fluent to conduct CFD on 2D symmetric Von Karman nose cones of varying fineness ratios.
