Viscous, Hypersonic Flows Over Compression Ramps

  • Werner Haase
Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics (NNFM) book series (NNFM, volume 29)


Steady, hypersonic viscous flows over two-dimensional compression ramps are computed. In order to gain insight into the influence of different Mach numbers, Reynolds numbers and ramp angles on the flow structure, results are presented for low and high Mach numbers, for low and high Reynolds numbers as well as for different ramp angles. Furthermore, with respect to high Mach number flows, the influence of real gas effects is investigated. Computed surface pressure, skin friction and heat transfer distributions are compared with available measurements.
