Numerical and experimental investigations of buffet on a diamond airfoil designed for space launchers applications

Abstract : The capability to reuse space launchers for new missions requires to better understand flow phenomena in the transonic regime, such as buffet, and its interaction with the structure. Indeed, the mechanical integrity of the launcher can be compromised by shock/boundary layer interactions, that induce lateral forces responsible for plunging and pitching moments. This work reports some numerical and experimental investigations about the aerodynamic and aeroelastic behavior of a diamond airfoil, designed for microsatellite-dedicated launchers, with a particular interest for the fluid/structure interaction during buffeting. Experiments have been conducted, based on Schlieren visualizations, and compared with numerical predictions obtained with unsteady RANS and Large-Eddy Simulation. Finally, the effect of buffeting on the composite aileron is studied by solving the equation of the dynamics, showing that the aerodynamic response of the airfoil tends to damp the structural displacement, and thus limit the effect of buffeting.
