Abstract:

The report deals with research in hypersonic rarefied gas dynamics. For a single component gas techniques for a hypersonic approximation to the moment equations were considered and a paper written on their application to the problem of source flow expansion. For gas mixtures a multi-fluid hydrodynamic theory was developed for a disparate mass mixture. In addition, work on the numerical solution of the non-linear Boltzmann equation was continued. Author
