Paper Abstract

Dome is the head of a missile which has such a strong effect on the missile's drag. When missiles attack at high speed, the drag caused by sphere dome is 50%~60% of whole missile's drag [1]. In order to reduce the dome's drag, the idea of "conformal optics" is studied in some papers. The state of the art of conformal optics is described in James P.Mils paper [2]. But most people's work focus on the outside of dome's shape design. This paper presents a way to design the dome's inside surface. This paper is composed by three main parts. The first part expands the calculation of dome's outflow and the shock wave. The second section describes how the optical optimizing function made. Finally, the last section shows the result.
