Title An open-source CFD solver for planetary entry / Vincent Casseau.
Name Casseau, Vincent. .
Abstract hy2Foam is a newly-coded open-source two-temperature computational fluid dynamics(CFD) solver that aims at (1) giving open-source access to a state-of-the-art hypersonic CFD solver to students and researchers; and (2) providing a foundation for a future hybrid CFD-DSMC (direct simulation Monte Carlo) code within the OpenFOAM framework. Benchmarking has firstly been performed for zero-dimensional test cases and hy2Foam has then been shown to produce results in good agreement with previously published data for a 2D-axisymmetric Mach 11 nitrogen flow over a blunted cone and with the dsmcFoam code for a series of Fourier cases and a 2D Mach 20 cylinder flow for a binary reacting mixture. This latter case scenario provides a useful basis for other codes to compare against. hy2Foam and dsmcFoam capabilities have eventually been utilised to derive and to test a new set of chemical rates based on quantum-kinetic theory and that could be employed for Earth atmospheric re-entry computations.
