Radiation and Gas-Surface Interaction Phenomena in High Speed Re-Entry

STO-EN-AVT-218

High speed re-entry represents a current challenge for space exploration programs. At such flight conditions shock layer radiation becomes a substantial part of the heat-transfer to the wall in addition to the Gas-Surface interaction (GSI) phenomena, with possible coupling effects. The objective of this special course notes focus on the extreme re-entry situations where the physical phenomena are much more pronounced and start to interplay. The ground testing capabilities and limitations for high speed re-entry are reviewed with the associated instrumentation. Radiation modelling, as well as the modeling development for GSI in such conditions, are presented. The consistent integration of those high fidelity models into CFD codes is inspected with their reliability to provide accurate ground-to-flight extrapolation.
