18 ConclusionThe simulations were also successful in calculating the flow structure around the fin in the separated flow region.The Physical nature of this effect was illustrated by presenting contours of Velocity and pressure at Mach numbers 0.3.The viscous components of the axial force on the grid fin were about 2 times greater than that on the planer fins.Despite of some drawbacks, the improved maneuverability grid fins offer at high supersonic speeds and high angles of attack have resulted in several grid fin research efforts in recent years.More recent efforts have focused on using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to better understand the characteristics of the flow passing through the fins in order to better optimize their performance.
