Welcome to the Aerodynamics Department
An important design aspect of a rocket is its aerodynamic profile, which is responsible for distributing the acting forces over the body. The body must generate the fitting values for uplift and drag to ensure the desired flight quality. Our aerodynamics team designs models of the rocket and tests them prior to the final assembly and integration process. Currently, our aerodynamics team has four members and they are introduced in the following section.
Here you can see how far our building project has progressed and receive important information about our work.
Current activities of the Aerodynamics department incorporate:
- CFD analysis and simulation of the rocket during its ascent flight
- Fabrication of the fins and nosecone (Aluminum and composites)
- Preparation of wind tunnel testing to verify design
