Abstract

Using a weighted essentially non-oscillatory scheme, a Navier-Stokes system of equations is solved in two dimensions. The model is able to account for the effects of molecular relaxation of nitrogen and oxygen and accounts for absorption due to shear viscosity, bulk viscosity, and thermal conductivity. The numerical scheme is described and the general utility of the current model is discussed. Applications are shown that demonstrate the model's ability to stably propagate multidimensional shocks.
