This project is part of a research effort by the T*AFSM in collaboration with NASA Johnson Space Center. The goal in this project is to compute the flow field around the X-38, including the wake flow and the aerodynamical forces, and to prepare the mechanism for extracting from these results the inflow data to be used in computation of flow past the parafoil used for the landing of the X-38.
