The workshop is organized by the Working Group “Radiation of High Temperature Gas” (WG RHTG) managed by ESA,through the ESA Technology Directorate. The local organization for this event is managed by the University of Oxford.
This edition of the workshop will integrate the contribution of the International Workshop on Shock Tube Technology.
The Workshop is devoted to promoting a dialogue on the state of the art and recent advances for simulation/modelling and experimental techniques of hypersonic radiating gas flows. In this frame, a limited number of test cases will be validated with respect to efficiency and accuracy of different methods and experimental approaches, for the determination of radiative heat fluxes encountered during atmospheric entry. The workshop provides the opportunity to explore related areas of research to face the challenges of future space flight.
- Non-equilibrium chemical kinetics
