A nozzle simulation code developed for AEDC is designed for the analysis of hypersonic converging-diverging nozzles including the effects of high pressure, finite-rate chemical reactions and vibrational relaxation, and turbulent wall boundary layers. In addition, a module has been written to predict the onset of water vapor condensation for hydrocarbon combustion product test gases. The flow solver is based on the data-parallel line relaxation DPLR numerical technique. The software package includes chemical species set-up codes, a batch grid generator, the flow solver, and a post processor. Gas models include air, nitrogen, and the products of combustion of isobutene with air and make-up oxygen. Software access is limited to qualified users.
