Opening of a circular drag parachute

Simulation of the opening of a drag parachute. Since the analysis is intended to evaluate the structural behavior, the extraction forces and aerodynamic loads are based on semi-empirical models.

Other applications of PARACHUTES: sail simulation

The solution methodology in PARACHUTES also allows the simulation of sails when the flow is mostly attached. Here an example.

Parachute asymmetrical brake deflection

Numerical simulation of asymmetric brake deflection of a large ram-air parachute. The deflection of the control line is given to the program as a set of input data time-deflection. This allows performing user-defined maneuvers during the simulation.

Parachute in-flight maneuver simulation

A programmed brake deflection is performed to start a turn during the simulation.
