Aim

The students can describe the aerodynamic problems occurring during re-entry of space vehicles into the earth's atmosphere. They are able to explain the interrelation of high Mach number flow regimes and the co-occurring real gas effects (physics and chemistry of hot gases). Furthermore, they can discuss the link between the thermodynamics of hot air and the flow development at hypersonic flow conditions coupled with extreme heat flux phenomena in the frame of the term "Aerothermodynamics". Beyond the basic knowledge gained in the lecture on "Fluid Mechanics" the students are qualified to discuss all fundamentals as necessary to cover the fluid mechanics of re-entry flight trajectory of a space vehicle. They are able to distinguish the applicability of gaskinetic methods and continuum theory with respect to atmospheric altitude. The students are able to apply scaling laws as needed to transfer hypersonic flow to ground facilities (shock tunnels). They are qualified to explain the working principle of such tunnels and can explain the required measuring techniques based on recently achieved results.
