In order to characterize Ariane 5 fairing acoustic loads at lift-off, tests were carried out on a motorized scale model of the launcher on its pad. The objective was to find a simple source description of the incident field on the fairing, which is intended to limit the input parameters required for the structural response computations, to reduce the inherently very long computation times. For that purpose, we developed two simple source models which both used a small number of uncorrelated plane waves. One i…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
