Abstract
The goal of the current project is to evaluate the accuracy of aero prediction tools in predicting main aerodynamic coefficients in the range between Mach 3 and 8. To achieve this, seven flight configurations, which have been tested experimentally, are used in a comparative study. The main aeroprediction codes used for this study are Prodas V3, Datcom, AP05. They are compared between Mach 3 and 8, and focus is made on accuracy in predicting major aerodynamic coefficients: Cx, Cna and Cma. In addition to these codes, results from SHEMA and Interact are used to illustrate the relative accuracy on predicted pressure distribution on the configurations.
