Abstract : Dynamic loads are determined for the Atlas-Able 5 vehicle during transonic flight due to unsteady aerodynamic pressures acting on the nose fairing. These pressures occur as random variables and appear to be associated with shock front oscillations and vortex shedding phenomena. Such phenomena may occur due to nose fairing shape, Mach number of flow, and angle of attack. (Author)
