Pyrolysis gas flow in thermally ablating media using time-implicit discontinuous Galerkin methods

Abstract

In this work, we apply time-implicit discontinuous Galerkin methods to the problem of thermal ablation, where we solve for the dynamics of flow of pyrolysis gas in a charring ablating media. We have benchmarked our results with the published data. The protective coating of thermal protection system over the space vehicle is of the order of a few centimeters… (More)
