Numerical simulations of high-speed, high-altitude flow over re-entry objects have been carried out for a variety of flow conditions corresponding to test cases proposed for the 1st Spacecraft Demise Workshop. In the continuum regime, conventional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been employed to characterise the aerothermodynamic loads acting on the(More)
simulations using open-source CFD and DSMC solvers. Abstract: hy2Foam is a newly-coded open-source two-temperature computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver that has previously been validated for zero-dimensional test cases. It aims at (1) giving open-source access to a state-of-the-art hypersonic CFD solver to students and researchers; and (2) providing a(More)
