A dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) is implemented to predict. ablation in model thrust vector control (TVC) vanes. A moving front algorithm is described. Experimental data are available from tests performed on scaled vanes. Numerical results for recession of quarter-scale and half-scale vanes compare well with experimental data. Future work includes full coupling of the flowfield and conduction solutions. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
