Estimating Reynolds number scaling and windtunnel boom effects with the help of CFD methods
2006 (English)In: Collection of Technical Papers - AIAA Applied Aerodynamics Conference, 2006, 889-895 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In order to estimate the aerodynamic effects of the twin sting booms in the European Transonic Wind Tunnel (ETW) on a transonic transport aircraft CFD calculations have been performed. The CFD calculations have been done solving the RANS equations on an unstructured grid for the aircraft with and without booms mounted and for varying Reynolds number. The two sets of data (booms on and booms off) enables comparisons, isolating booms and Reynolds number effects and conclusions can be drawn. These conclusions might give information about how the free flight aircraft would differ from the wind tunnel data.
