Photographed on 08/14/96. -- 3% Hyper-X Forebody/adapter for Pegasus booster. Researchers: William C. Woods and Dr. Scott D. Holland (Aerothermodynamics Branch/Aero- and Gas- Dynamics Division). These photographs document the rapid prototyping model fabrication process for the 3% Hyper-X Forebody/adapter for the Pegasus booster. The photographs show the stereolithography pattern and the rough stainless steel casting (prior to final handworking). Although the process does not yield a high-fidelity model, it does provide the program with the ability to obtain a first look at the aerodynamic characteristics for the initial assessment and design purposes. These photographs are cataloged as PHX-010 in the Hyper-X photo archive.
