Modeling the effect of body oscillations at the high enthalpy flow around a spherically blunted cone on conjugated heat and mass transfer


Mathematical modeling is offered for describing the effect of variable incidence between the body axis and the high enthalpy air flow on conjugated heat and mass transfer in a heat shield material at the thermochemical decomposition of the shield. Results of numerical simulation were obtained for spatial supersonic flow near a body with pitch variations. The effect of body oscillation with the rates 0–100 deg/s on heat and mass characteristics was studied.
