 March 11, 2021, 03:14 Aerodynamic heating in SU2 #1 New Member   Join Date: Mar 2021 Posts: 11 Rep Power: 5 Hello. I'm trying to calculate the aerodynamic heating of a plane that is flying in a defined trayectory. Is it possible to use SU2 or with SU2 I will only obtain the temperature field of the fluid, not over the surface? Thank you in advance.

Heat fluxes can e.g. be computed by setting a temperature boundary condition and letting SU2 evaluate them at that boundary just like it does for Cd, Cl, etc. Best, Ole

I want to calculate the temperature's evolution over the surface of a body inmersed in a particular flow (aerodynamic heating) and I don't know if SU2 is capable of calculating that taking into account the body's material, etc. I mean, I'm not interested on what happens with the flow, just the body (for example, to make sure the body is not going to melt because of the aerodynamic heating in a particular condition). Best, Rebeca
