Two split-matrix marching methods for hypersonic flow are presented: a space marching method for inviscid flow and a time-integration marching method for viscous flow. For both methods the solution algorithm is explained. Flow calculations of the hypersonic flow over a two-stage transport vehicle show that the methods allow an economic computation of flows over complex geometries with sharp shocks and no spurious oszillations without using any explicit artificial damping.
