Fifth-generation missiles accelerate up to 100 g in turns, and higher accelerations are expected as agility increases. We have developed the theory of aerodynamics for arbitrary accelerations, and have validated modelling in a Computational Fluid Dynamics code. In this paper we will show fin disruption by strake vortices.
