Abstract : Results are presented for chemical nonequilibrium inviscid and viscid (laminar) flow field calculations around spherically blunted cone geometries (10-, 15-, and 20-deg half-angle) at high altitude, high-speed, zero angle-of-attack conditions in the earth's atmosphere (250,000 ft at 25,000 ft/sec, 200,000 ft at 20,000 ft/sec, and 150,000 ft at 15,000 ft/sec). The effects of atom recombination at the body surface are analyzed by considering both catalytic and noncatalytic wall conditions for three different wall temperatures (540, 2500, and 5000R). Injection of a foreign gas (either nonreacting helium or argon or chemically reacting carbon dioxide) is included in order to study the effects of mass transfer. Treatment of the stagnation point using both boundary-layer and thin viscous shock-layer analyses is emphasized, as well as the influence of viscous interaction over the entire body. (Author)
