Application of Bayesian Statistical Methods for the Analysis of DSMC Simulations of Hypersonic Shocks

This research centers on laying the groundwork for the application of Bayesian statistical methods for the calibration of parameters relevant to modeling a hypersonic shock layer with the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method. The DSMC method used in this work employs the algorithm of Bird (1994), with modifications to allow for the efficient… (More)
