Anybody know which rocket they used?https://sites.wff.nasa.gov/code810/pastmissions.html12.088 NR Gilbert/NASA Langley Research CenterMarch 30, 2021Aerodynamic Buffet Flight Test (ABFT)12.088 NR was launched from White Sands Missile Range, NM on March 30, 2021. Dynamic loads resulting from transonic aerodynamic buffet are often the largest contributor to launch vehicle structural load margins, and proper understanding of that phenomenon is an important aspect of launch vehicle design. Over predicting those loads will lead to an inefficient, heavier than necessary structural design, while under predicting them could lead to structural failure. This mission is designed to gather flight data on a vehicle shape that has only been tested in wind tunnels previously.
READY, SET, LAUNCH 🚀Langley and NASA's Wallops Flight Facility collaborated on the Aerodynamic Buffet Flight Test (ABFT) concept rocket that successfully launched from U.S. Army White Sands Missile Range yesterday!The ABFT shape was chosen due to its highly unsteady aerodynamics and it went through extensive wind tunnel testing in the 1960s and 2015. The data collected from this launch will help scientists understand how to better predict and model the forces on rockets.This data will eventually help with future NASA's Space Launch System and #Artemis missions to make space flight safer.
