Abstract : WITH INCREASING Mach numbers of high speed vehicles there is a growing need for the design people to get information on the steadily growing complexity of the flows outside and inside these airplanes. Today, this need can only be satisfied by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) because above certain Mach numbers flows in windtunnels can no longer fully simulate the actual flow physics. Especially for the design of optimal propulsion systems which are capable of economically propelling aircraft to hypersonic Mach numbers understanding of the real flow is mandatory.
