Aerothermodynamic Design, Review on Ground Testing and CFD


The objective of this Lecture Series was to offer a review of the major investigation tools used in hypersonic research. It presented the typical aerothermodynamics phenomena occurring in hypersonic flight in parallel with the ground testing and CFD capabilities tailored for their study. The idea was to provide engineers and researchers with a critical view on the experimental tools and numerical models used in aerospace research for aircraft design. Their range of validity was addressed as well as their limit and capabilities. It aimed also to define the needs for development of experimental facility and flow diagnostics as well as modeling efforts. A specific session pointed out the recent research axis dealing with validation and verification for hypersonic studies. The note constituted a reference on the advanced research tools developed for re-entry and cruise vehicle design.
