Experiment, Modeling and Simulation of Gas-Surface Interactions for Reactive Flows in Hypersonic Flights


The lecture series addressed the chemical non-equilibrium phenomena in the context of hypersonic re-entry flow. The objectives were to review the up-to-date experimental techniques, the theoretical models, as well as the numerical simulation strategies involved in the treatment of the chemical characters of high temperatures gases. Focusing on re-entry situation the presentations dealt with high temperature gas chemistry and also on gas-surface interaction known as catalytic effects for space vehicles. A systematic review has been presented from the detailed modeling of the microscopic level phenomena to the implementation of models for applied CDF on re-entry vehicles. As a first conclusion it appears that the bridge from the lower scale to the macroscopic surface recombination properties need further studies to be efficiently establish.
