dc.description.abstractThis study used the Computational Fluid Dynamics code, ANSYS-CFX to predict the static aerodynamic characteristics of a canard-wing missile configuration with a hemispherical nose, triangular wedge canards and fixed trapezoidal wings. The study was conducted for Mach numbers of 0.2, 0.8 and 1.2. The results were compared against experimental data from actual wind tunnel tests and data from a semi-empirical method, AP09. The ANSYS-CFX results showed good agreement for CN, CM, and CL but less agreement for CA when compared to the experimental results. The AP09 results also showed good agreement for CN, CM, and CL but also showed less agreement for CA.en_US
