Slender Bodyaerodynamics involves nonlinear interference between components, includingviscous interactions. Aeroelastic analysis is thereby typically accomplished bycomputational fluid/structural dynamic (CFD/CSD) methods, which arecomputationally expensive. Commercial aerodynamic prediction codes areavailable, but are not suited for aeroelastic analysis includingviscous-dominated effects at high flow incidences.
The first step wasto developed an analytical/engineering method using a 2D unsteady potentialformulation (called the free vortex model or FVM) to predict the normal force,centre-of-pressure and vortex position for cruciform wing-body combinations inthe “plus” orientation, at supersonic and extended to low subsonic speeds
This unique andonly world method based on an unsteady analytical approach uses the sameequations from subsonic to supersonic/hypersonic flows
The second part ofthis presentation is devoted to the extension of the local piston theory (LPT),which is typically 4 order of magnitude more computationally efficient thanunsteady CFD and which requires a single reference steady CFD solution, withthe aim of making it more and accurate and robust in application to practicalgeometries. This is accomplished through physics-based extensions to themathematical formulation and through the development of a mathematical basisfor LPT in viscous flows.
