Abstract : This is a two volume final report for the research entitled Computation of Hypersonic Interference Flowfields. This volume involves the numerical solution of the three-dimensional unsteady Euler and Navier-Stokes equations for a calorically perfect gas. Volume II involves the development techniques for the solution of three-dimensional inviscid and viscous hypersonic flows in chemical equilibrium. This report addresses the numerical formulation and solution of the equations as well as an analysis of the optimization of the numerical solution algorithm used to solve the equations. Selected results of numerious hypersonic flow computations--including computations of heat transfer to bodies with different nose shapes--are presented.
