RockSim doesn't allow one to designate alternating wind and speed directions in regards to altitude layers...
In fact, it *seems* the altitude of the rocket is independent of the wind speed (and thus the angle of attack), and appears to only influence the horizontal 'drift' of the rocket in ascent and decent.
Obviously this cannot be correct.
Since I will be attempting a Mach 2+, 30Kft+ flight... the simulations are very important.
Ideas? Suggestions? Clarifications in Logic?
Also curious about nosecone material... a buddy says that at Mach 2+ my nosecone will melt if made of aluminum. He suggests graphite... is this necessary?
Thanks in advance...
