Research Interests


Scramjets

Scramjets are hypersonic airbreathing engines that utilize the unique technology of supersonic combustion. The ultimate goal of developing such engines is to propel future space transportation systems safely through the atmosphere. Scramjets are dominated by highly complex aerothermodynamic processes that are difficult, if not impossible, to fully simulate with ground-based test facilities. Flight-testing is a means to overcome some of these difficulties, although current test programs can only provide useful data for a limited range of the flight envelope. Computations form therefore a crucial element within the development and design of scramjet engines, combining all of the physical aspects necessary to extend small-scale ground-based testing to full-scale flight conditions.
In cooperation with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Cologne we perform computations to help with the preperation and interpretation of the experiments done at the DLR.
