Crucial parachute inflation in supersonic flow
Mach number =2, Re=3.500.000, forebody drag Cd=0.5.
The couple of structural program MONSTR-2.2 and
aerodynamic code EXPRESS provides an aeroelastic
solution. Since both codes are very fast, the solution takes several minutes
(home PC Pentium-100). The static solution can be achieved as the dynamic
one due to artificial dissipative forces.
