A Study of Paradrogue Aerodynamics 2020-01-0027

Scaled paradrogue models were designed, built, and tested for the purpose of possible UAS aerial refueling application. Paradrogue chute gore patterns were changed between three models and studied using wind tunnel testing and computational fluid dynamics simulations. Drag coefficient values, as well as vortex shedding characteristics through POD and DMD analysis, were compared between the three models, with an emphasis on possible affects on flight stability.
