Abstract:

Methods were developed for conducting numerical experiments with a model gas in a digital computer. The methods were used to investigate the structure of strong normal shock waves, and the aerodynamic properties of simple bodies in the hypersonic transition regime. The quasi-steady equilibrium state of a shockheated atmosphere was studied with particular reference to the solar atmosphere. A method was also developed for the study of the unsteady behaviour of a heated atmosphere. Author
