Abstract : The investigation of reentry flowfields at very high incidence showed that the Lockheed Navier-Stokes computer code is capable of producing accurate flowfield solutions at angles of attack up to about 60 degrees. Current work is centered around: (a) using this code as a tool to investigate the properties of high incidence flows, and (b) extending the present code to allow it to compute flows at incidence beyond 60 degrees, in order to cover the full range of incidence encountered by the reentry vehicles of the Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM) System.
