A time accurate simulation of a spinning missile with dithering canards. Motion was prescribed, Mach 1.5, spinning at around 3000 deg/sec, at 3 deg aoa. Courtesy of Dynetics
Multiple jet interaction computation. Two sonic jets with normal injection into a supersonic flow. The flow domain was 3-D and the Wilcox k-omega turbulence model was used. Mach contours displayed.
