On the Near-field Aerodynamics of a Projectile Launched from a Ballistic Range

...However, numerical investigations of the complex geometry of the projectile and the muzzle brake are still difficult, and it needs to predigest the computational model, such as ignoring the chemical reactions, two-phase flow and the projectile shape [1, 8, 9], as well as the moving of projectile [10, 11] etc....
...These kinds of muzzle flows are usually characterized mainly by two blast waves originating by two jet flows, and their interactions with the projectile [1-3]....

...In such a case, the projectile aerodynamics may be different from the steady aerodynamics, in which, at high-Reynolds number, the aerodynamics drag is only a function of only Mach number if the projectile shape were given (Pope and Goin, 1963; Sun et al., 2005)....
