Numerical Simulation on Aerodynamics of Ramjet Projectiles
Three-dimensional Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes simulations have been performed to explore the aerodynamic characteristics of ramjet projectiles. The turbulence model used is the RNG k-ε model. The numerical algorithms termed total variational diminishing (TVD) was adopted. The complex wave structures of ramjet projectiles with different architecture at different inflow Mach number were achieved by numerical simulation. The influence of inflow Mach number on aerodynamic characteristics and pressure center of ramjet projectiles were analyzed. Results show that lift coefficient and pressure center increase with the argument of inflow Mach number. Ramjet projectiles with different architecture have different drag coefficient trend.
