Inviscid Flow Field Computation of Hypervelocity Projectiles 881520

Inviscid flow fields have been computed for blunt axisymmetric shapes exposed to a hypersonic environment. A fully implicit scheme using a flux vector splitting technique was used to obtain a finite difference formulation. To increase computational efficiency, an approximate factorization scheme was used. Flow-field solutions were obtained for chemically reacting air using a decoupled approach. Flow fields were computed for blunted, flared shapes over a range of Mach numbers from 2 to 20.
