Recently, I have worked some Python code for Missile-Rocket-Projectile Simulation having 2DOF.
Because I could only simulate lift/drag characteristics of the missile body as shown in Fig. 5, my simulation is relatively simple. Full 6DOF simulation work have been developed for Matlab code when the full 6DOF data, inertia, center of gravity, moment coefficient, is available, however, in most cases, it is not available.
Most of my article in the past was relied on estimation of hunch or prediction from common sense, however, I realized better tool for estimation is required. Although, modification of past Matlab code is easier way, study of python code is also enjoyable.
As a future plan, I perform CFD for supersonic reference cases via ANSA + StarCCM while improvement for this code will be done.
After completion, analysis for Missile/SCRAMJET/Cruise Missile is on plan
