Abstract

The paper investigates selected hypersonic flow conditions along the SKYLON re-entry trajectory based on Navier-Stokes simulations with the DLR TAU code. The obtained surface values are compared in order to find the most critical flow condition with respect to the maximum heat flux and the surface temperatures.
