Hypersonic flow
Is it possible to use Fluent to solve Hypersonic flow problems?

Re: Hypersonic flow
yes! of course! i have gone up to mach 5! but it needs lot of iterations and cpu effort.

Re: Hypersonic flow
Thanks. Any idea what is the maximum Mach number Fluent can take? I might go upto Mach 25.

Re: Hypersonic flow
in fact, i havent tested for it, but 25 is possible as you said!

Re: Hypersonic flow
Thanks. Can Fluent handle Real gas model? Any idea?

Re: Hypersonic flow
yes! define the real gas properties in the materials section with varyinf Cp,viscosity and other things. u can go for user defined profiles also.

Hypersonic flow
Hi, im relatively new to modelling Hypersonic on FLUENT.I want to invetigate Mach 21.54. How do you do it?

Hi, I am very new to the hypersonic flow modeling. I am in the learning process.
