Abstract:

A study has been made of ion-electron distributions for a hypersonic vehicle with a 10-degree semivertex, sharply pointed cone at Mach 8 and 10 for sea-level flight. The report is concerned specifically with computational aspects of the ion-electron-distribution equations involved. The equations to be solved are presented to describe the transformations required to simplify their numerical solution. The computational aspects include transformations to simplify the solutions of the equations linearization of the equations to permit use of matrix methods, derivation of small-value, asymptotic solutions, and a computer program.
