Side force over slender body with rings at different location at subsonic speed

Investigations have been made adopting experiments and computations on an ogive-nosed slender body at different angles of attack and Reynolds number of 29,000 based on the model base diameter diameter. The results indicated an increase in the side force at large angles of attack, which is mainly due to the presence of asymmetric vortices in the leeward of the body. The inclusion of a rectangular cross-sectioned ring in the initial portion of the body reduced the side force at higher angles of attack. However, significant side force was experienced at lower angles of attack (30°?<?a?<?40°). Use of a ring of 3% height was found to be suitable for reducing the side force at a higher angle of attack. From the results obtained it was observed that a ring if placed at a different axial location alters the flow field and changes the side force at higher angles of attack. Further studies indicated that placing of rings pair at an axial location of 3.5 and 4.5 times the base diameter reduced the side force to a very low value at all the angles of attack for the present shape of body and flow conditions.
