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.
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.
