Post Flight Analysis of SHEFEX I: Shock Tunnel Testing and Related CFD Analysis

Martinez Schramm, Jan and Barth, Tarik and Wagner, Alexander and Hannemann, Klaus (2011) Post Flight Analysis of SHEFEX I: Shock Tunnel Testing and Related CFD Analysis. 7th European Symposium on Aerothermodynamics for Space Vehicles , 9. Mai - 12. Mai 2011, Brugge, Belgien.

The SHarp Edge Flight EXperiment (SHEFEX) program of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is primarily focused on the investigation of the potential to utilise improved shapes for space vehicles by considering sharp edges and facetted surfaces. One goal is to set up a sky based test facility to gain knowledge of the physics of hypersonic flow, complemented by numerical analysis and ground based testing. Further, the series of SHEFEX flight experiments is an excellent test bed for new technological concepts and flight instrumentation, and it is a source of motivation for young scientist and engineers providing an excellent school for future space-program engineers and managers. After the successful first SHEFEX flight in October 2005, a second flight is scheduled for September 2011 and additional flights are planned for 2015 ff. With the SHEFEX-I flight and the subsequent numerical and experimental post flight analysis, DLR could for the first time close the loop between the three major disciplines of aerothermodynamic research namely CFD, ground based testing and flight.
