Characteristics of Turbulent Boundary Layers along a Hypersonic Vehicle

<p> The flight conditions of a hypersonic vehicle on an ascent trajectory are computed and Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations of the turbulent boundary layers are performed across a Mach number range of 0.3 up to 16 using the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, VULCAN....
