Abstract : Chemical recombination can be neglected for nonequilibrium flows about blunt bodies at high altitudes of flight. Under these conditions, model scaling of nonequilibrium effects is possible. The scaling laws are demonstrated for both inviscid and fully viscous flows using a Lighthill gas model. Numerical solutions of nonequilibrium airflows with fully coupled chemistry provide a preliminary verification of such scaling for air. (Author)
