Abstract

In this study, the hypersonic non-equilibrium flows over spheres are numerically investigated by a robust conservation element and solution element (CE/SE) code, which is based on hybrid meshes consisting of triangular elements and quadrilateral elements. The dissociating chemical reactions and the vibrational energy relaxation are taken into account. Numerous examples of nitrogen flows and air flows are provided to demonstrate the accuracy and reliability of the present CE/SE code and to reveal the flow features of hypersonic non-equilibrium flows.
