Abstract:

The SOCRATES contamination-interaction code has been used to simulate the reactions of 0 C02 -- C02v O, O C02 - COv 02, and C02 H - CO OHv at an altitude of 800 km in both ram and wake directions of the spacecraft. These simulations show that the radiation from these reactions can be measurable for the parameters which have been used in these calculations. The investigation carries out the simulations as much as 30 km from the spacecraft. The radiative intensity of COv and OHv show the highest and lowest, respectively. Gas plume, C02, CO, and OH Emissions, Monte Carlo method, Rarefied flows.
