Sounding rockets frequently contain scientific equipment that needs to survive the thermal consequences of re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere at hypersonic velocities. Traditional thermal protection systems have been designed using uncoupled simulation methods that consider the exterior aerodynamic heating and the interior thermal behavior separately, but this may cause simulation results to be incomplete and even misleading.

Join us for our upcoming webinar to discover how fluid–structure interaction (FSI) can provide a better understanding of thermal performance in aerospace and defense engineering

This webinar will consider a typical sounding rocket with simplified internal components subjected to atmospheric re-entry aerodynamic conditions. It will illustrate the capabilities and workflow approaches that can be used to evaluate the thermal performance using ANSYS structural and CFD simulation tools connected via the Ansys Systems Coupling environment.

Presented by: Walter Schwarz, PhD
Walter Schwarz is an engineering simulation expert with over 30 years of experience in the areas of flow modeling, heat transfer and turbulence. He is a lead application engineer for the ANSYS Customer Excellence (ACE) team. Dr. Schwarz received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering (thermosciences group) from Stanford University. Before joining Fluent Inc. in 1996, Dr. Schwarz worked at Westinghouse in the nuclear industry, and was an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology.
