All rights reserved.During rocket/missile system design process, system design must be made in accordance with military standards, which have very strict rules. Product delivery dates usually are very rigid. Despite this, during conceptual design, requirements are often updated within the design process that requires the design to be updated frequently. It is essential to perform these steps as efficiently and quickly as possible. The products which are inexpensive and have best performance parameters are preferred, and so the companies with these products can survive. For this purpose, the conceptual design, which is the first step of the system design process, needs to be optimized. In this study, it is aimed to develop a system design tool that simplifies the conceptual design process, creates design alternatives quickly, tests them, performs performance analysis, and selects the optimum among these alternatives. By using this tool, it is possible for the designer to obtain the information needed for the preliminary process quickly and efficiently.


Fully transient conjugate analysis of silica-phenolic charing ablation coupled with interior ballistics
Alanyalıoğlu, Çetin Ozan; Özyörük, Yusuf (2019-01-01)

All rights reserved.Due to its excellent insulation capability, usage of silica-phenolic charring ablator as nozzle liner is a common practice in solid rocket motor industry. During the design of a solid rocket motor employing silica-phenolic as nozzle liner, it is desired to conduct an accurate analysis yielding in-depth thermal response and recession characteristics. As the interior ballistics and nozzle recession rate mutually interact...
Multi-element high-lift design using the Navier-Stokes equations
Eyi, Sinan; Lee, K.D.; Rogers, S.E.; Kwak, D. (1996-01-01)
© by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc. All rights reserved.A method of optimizing the geometry and position of high-lift system elements is presented. The design optimization method maximizes lift without increasing the drag of multi-element airfoils at take-off and landing configurations. It uses an incompressible Navier-Stokes flow solver, a chimera overlaid grid system, and a constrained numerical optimizer. A finite-difference method is used to obtain aerodynamic sensitivity d...

Gelisli, Kubra Asena; Aradag, Selin; Tascioglu, Yigit; Özer, Mehmet Bülent (2019-01-01)
© 2019, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA. All rights reserved.A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) study is conducted to investigate the unsteady, turbulent supersonic cavity flow characteristics and to control the severe effects of the flow field. Simulations of Mach 1.5 supersonic cavity flow with a length to depth ratio of 5.07 are performed using commercial ANSYS Fluent solver. Unsteady density-based Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations are modeled with standard k-ω turb...
Multi-Fidelity Aerodynamic Dataset Generation of a Fighter Aircraft with a Deep Neural-Genetic Network
Millidere, Murat; Gomec, Fazil Selcuk; Kurt, Huseyin Burak; Akgül, Ferhat (2021-01-01)
© 2021, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc.. All rights reserved.This paper is a follow-up study on prior research work on multi-fidelity aerodynamic dataset generation. The prior work studied a comparison of modified Variable-Complexity Modelling and co-Kriging methods applied to F-16 fighter aircraft. In this research, the multi-fidelity deep neural-genetic network method is introduced. The results provide evidence that the deep neural-genetic network method in this paper can be employ...
Parametric design and investigation of grid fin aerodynamics in supersonic flow using computational fluid dynamics
Dinçer, Erdem; Sezer Uzol, Nilay (2022-01-01)
© 2022, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA. All rights reserved.Recently, with the advances in modern missile industry, faster and more maneuverable missiles became fashionable. Designing fast and agile missiles requires efficient and strong control surfaces and grid fin is a candidate to fulfill this need. Grid fins are unconventional control surfaces, which has an outer frame supporting interior web structure. In this paper, “MICOM Grid Fin” wind tunnel experiments are used as th...
