Abstract
A study is underway to address effects of aero-optic (AO) flow components added to the typically modeled clean, dry flow. This is the first of multiple runs to address effects of three-dimensional turrets, moist air and aerosols for a turret in airflow at 0.4 Mach with parameters matching atmosphere at 1 km. The resulting analysis will be used as a baseline for comparison with airflow with the same parameters but including moisture, and again including a realistic population of aerosol particles of varying size. Atmospheric properties were determined using High Energy Laser End-to-End Operational Simulation (HELEEOS).
