Abstract

This paper presents a set of cavity flow calculations involving door opening, store release and aeroelasticity. Aeroelastic effects were present, but secondary for the case at hand. For established bay flows, the structural excitation showed a directional dependence, and the structures were responding to the flow frequency content. Maximum store deformations were of about 2% of the store diameter. This is the first time where such effects are quantified for store releases from within bays. The store deformation while interacting with the shear layer, and the store trajectory variability are also quantified.
