Hypersonic Simulation

Multiphysics Simulation for Hypersonic Vehicle Design

APPLICATIONS

Hypersonic Speed Simulation Software

Ansys simulation tools are perfect solutions to examine all the challenges of hypersonic speed. As an aircraft begins to travel above Mach 1, fluids start to exhibit different physical behavior. Our multiphysics simulations enable users to capture the complex phenomena that occur, including strong shocks, plasma, ablation, structural deformation and chemical nonequilibrium. Shorten your development time and reduce testing efforts with industry-leading software that allows you to quickly tackle problems specific to hypersonic design.

Hypersonic Speed Presents Complex Fluid Flow Behavior

At hypersonic speeds, many challenges may arise that need to be closely examined. There are so few wind tunnels in the world capable of testing hypersonic prototypes, and flight testing is extremely expensive and lengthy. Simulation offers the best and most cost-effective way to look at this flight regime. Ansys simulation tools can be used to examine all the challenges associated with hypersonic speed.

Ansys Solutions for Hypersonic Challenges

Ansys simulation tools can be used to examine all the challenges one may face while traveling at hypersonic speed.

  • Very strong shocks -  strong shocks cause discontinuous temperatures, pressures and densities across the shock waves
  • Chemical and thermodynamic nonequilibrium – as Mach number rises, vibrational excitation of air, dissociation and ionization occur
  • Plasma – Will degrade radio communications and generate ‘blackout’ effect
  • Ablation – solid materials convert to gas due to pyrolysis and surface reactions
  • Structural deformation – extreme temperatures and heat fluxes reduce structural integrity
