Hypersonic with OpenFOAM
Hi !

First, I'm completely new with OpenFOAM.
I have to study it's possibilities in the area of hypersonic CFD. So here are my questions :
Does OpenFOAM have a built-in tool to handle hypersonic flows?
Has any public work been done on the subject? (I found some clues on this forum but nothing conclusive)

Thank you for your answers,

Hi Maxime,

is an interesting topic! Maybe you already did, but you should have a look at this thread:

What Mach number regime do you want to simulate?

depending on this, what phenomenon (chemical reaction, vibration, radiation etc) of hypersonic flow do you have to model?
