@AxisAerospace ??? a fairing goes up, heat shield goes down
I was talking about Fairing....
So it do slow down a bit
I don't want to argue more... If u like it then if u want then upvote ... If u not then I don't know... Ur wish ...
@AxisAerospace it slows it down when reentering, so that you can safely deploy a parachute. If mach 20 to under mach 1 is "a bit" to you then excuse me but LMAO
A dog cant be human but may learn some human activities... Similarly a heat shield couldn't be a parachute but may slow down a bit.....
@AxisAerospace no because it slows it down, just like a parachute
If they are aren't aerodynamic then the capsule will broke up into pieces due to the huge frictional force of air.....
@Vedhaspace heat shields are supposed to slow down capsules to a decent speed, so they aren't aerodynamic
@seventeen the fairings used by others are not reuseable
ISRO termed fairing as heatsheild because of the property it has
Real heatsheild: aerodynamic (non turbulent flow of air), protects the capsule from heat
Fairing: aerodynamic (Sam as mentioned above), protects payload from heat.
@AxisAerospace I think what you mean is that it doesn't burn in the atmosphere when the fairings reenter the atmosphere, because they are meant to be reusable
U r right... It make the rocket aerodynamic but also protect it from heat...
@seventeen have you ever seen the interior of the heat shield (your fairing).... It is either black or silver.... And what colour matters.... The elements are important
@AxisAerospace no it's supposed to keep the rocket aerodynamic, if it was a heat shield it would've been silver, gold or black
@seventeen it's called heatsheild in ISRO because it protects the payload from heat while accent.
Yes it is also known as Heat Shield... It protects the payload from heat damage.... It is also known as fairing...
"heat shield seperation test"
thats not a heat shield
I am gonna make an announcement forum
