A Gneral Formulation for Computation of Subsonic Region of a Blunt Body Problem with Time Dependent Approach

Sheo Prakash, David P. Nascimento


The paper deals with the flow field investigation over
a blunt body solving the time dependent Euler's equations. The solution is marched in time till the steady state is reached.
The shock is captured as a part of the solution. The computer code developed is applicable to a continuum flow and can be easily modified to consider the ionization and the dissociation effects in a reentry-body. Sample results over a sphere kept in a supersonic stream are presented and compared with other results.
