A new nose cones concept that promises a gain in performance over existing conventional nose cones is discussed in this paper the term nose cone is used to refer to the forward most section of a rocket, guided missile or aircraft. The cone is shaped to offer minimum aerodynamic resistance. Nose cones are also designed for travel in and under water and in high-speed land vehiclesGiven the problem of the aerodynamic design of the nose cone section of any vehicle or body meant to travel through a compressible fluid medium (such as a rocket or aircraft missile or bullet), an important problem is the determination of the nose conegeometrical shape for optimum performance. For many applications, such a task requires the definition of a solid of revolutionshape that experiences minimal resistance to rapid motion through such a fluid medium, which consists of elastic particles This project evaluates missile nose cone is analysis using the materials are Titanium Ti-6Al-4V most commonly used alloy. Titanium ti -6al-6v-2sn, titanium grade 1 the remainder titanium. These are significantly stronger than commercially pure titanium. While having the same stiffness and thermal properties a structural-loaded, a pressure sudden impact loads and a foam nose-cone concept Results from analysis of the nose cone are used in structural analysis performed with ANSYS. A naval model is designed for from the concepts of blunt nose cone and analyzed with the commercial software catia. The nose concept conforms to the requirements for structural integrity, weight, functionality.
