Model assumes adiabatic compression of air in front of highâvelocity frag-ment since the motion of the fragment is an extremely fast process relative to the heat transfer process. The equation of the state of the ideal gas is adopted. Analysis of re-sults and comparison with results obtained by numerical simulation (CFD software) and experimental data show this correction model significantly reduces the relative error of aerodynamic force modelling in the relevant area of the high velocity of the fragment, when the air compression is significant.
