To optimize projectile structure design,FLUENT Gambit is used to establish a numerical simulation model for the outer flow field of a projectile,the mesh of the model is built,and the numerical simulation is performed by FLUENT on the outer flow field of the projectile to obtain the aerodynamic parameters. The stability and the estimated shot range obtained by the simulation results are in good agreement with the test results. So it is feasible and effective to design the aerodynamic profile of projectile using numerical simulation method and the simulation results can provide some references for the design solution.
