Abstract

The intent of this study is to evaluate existing gaps in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technology with an emphasis on hypersonic flow modeling. The importance of validation is highlighted, especially with respect to the dearth of available hypersonic flow data. Modeling challenges relevant to hypersonic air-breathing propulsion, such as multi-phase flow and turbulent mixing, are discussed and areas for continued research are identified. Two specialized codes (DPLR and VULCAN) and two general purpose solvers (CFD++ and FLUENT) are also reviewed for use in hypersonic applications.
