A modular particle-continuum (MPC) numerical method is presented which solves the Navier-Stokes (NS) equations in regions of near-equilibrium and uses the direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method where the flow is in non-equilibrium. The MPC method is designed specifically for steady-state, hypersonic, non-equilibrium flows and couples existing,(More)
A modular particle-continuum (MPC) numerical method is used to simulate steady-state hypersonic flows which exhibit local regions of non-equilibrium embedded within mainly continuum flow fields. The MPC method loosely couples direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) and Navier-Stokes (NS) methods which operate in different regions, use different mesh densities,(More)
