A three-dimensional conduction model has been developed to predict the transient temperature distribution inside a thick solid that is irradiated by a moving laser source, and the changing shape of a groove carved into it by evaporation of material. The laser may operate in CW or in pulsed mode with arbitrary temporal as well as spatial intensity(More)
This work presents an OpenFOAM implementation of the P N approximation for radiative heat transfer, including higher orders P 3 , P 5 , and P 7. Also described is a procedure which enables the sequential numerical computations of the coupled partial differential equations (PDEs) by re-expressing the boundary conditions in matrix form so that individual(More)
Direct numerical simulations are conducted to study the effects of emission turbulence–radiation interaction in hypersonic turbulent boundary layers, representative of the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle at peak-heating condition during reentry. A nondimensional governing parameter to measure the significance of emission turbulence–radiation interaction is(More)
