Longitudinal Aerodynamics of a Canard Guided Spin Stabilized Projectile
Navier–Stokes simulation is performed on a canard guided spinning projectile for different attack angles and circumferential position angles of canard over the Mach number range of 1.8–2.2. The computational Magnus moment coefficients of test case are validated with available experimental data of a Secant-Ogive-Cylinder-Boattail (SOCBT) configuration at Mach 3, demonstrating that the method can provide an accurate and viable approach for this problem. The aim of the present study is to provide a detailed understanding of the effects of canard with different circumferential position angles on longitudinal aerodynamic coefficients at three supersonic speeds and various angles of attack. And the results show that normal force coefficients and pitch moment coefficients vary periodically with the circumferential position angles of canard.
