To develop a detailed planetary atmosphere model, including nondimensional aerodynamic parameters for modeling aerothermodynamic force, moment, and heat transfer during atmospheric flight.
To present a 21-layer standard atmosphere for the earth—ranging from sea level to a geometric altitude of 700km—for use in all simulations of atmospheric and transatmospheric trajectories in subsequent chapters.
To present an exponential atmospheric model useful in obtaining analytical insight into planetary entry trajectories.
