Abstract:

A PROCEDURE IS PROPOSED FOR THE DESIGN OF MISSILE CONTROL SURFACES USING AEROELASTIC TAILORING TO ENHANCE THEIR PERFORMANCE. THE PRINCIPAL GOAL OF THE PROCEDURE IS TO MINIMIZE THE VARIATION OF THE CHORDWISE POSITION OF THE AERODYNAMIC CENTER OF PRESSURE AS THE SURFACE DEFORMS UNDER LOAD. OTHER PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES, SUCH AS MAINTAINING OR IMPROVING MARGINS OF SAFETY AGAINST FLUTTER, CAN ALSO BE INCORPORATED. THE PURPOSE OF THE PRESENT RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP THE PROCEDURE FOR SUPERSONIC SPEEDS AND EVALUATE IT BY COMPARING AN AEROELASTICALLY TAILORED COMPOSITE FIN DESIGN WITH A CONVENTIONAL DESIGN. SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THIS PHASE I WORK IS EXPECTED TO LEAD TO FABRICATION AND EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF THE DESIGN IN A SUPERSONIC WIND TUNNEL IN PHASE II.
