Abstract: In this paper a new flow solver is constructed to simulate coupled hypersonic flow-radiation over a reentry vehicle. A large percentage of radiative energy emitted in the shock-layer is likely to escape the region, resulting in cooling of the shock layer. This may change the flow parameters in the flowfleld and, in turn, can affect radiative as well as convective heat loads. The flow solver employs a number of existing schemes and tools available in OpenFOAM; along with a number of additional features for high temperature, compressible and chemically reacting flows, and k-distribution models for radiative calculations. The radiative transport is solved with the one-dimensional tangent slab and P1 methods, and also with a two-dimensional P1 scheme. The new solver is applied to simulate flow around an entry vehicle in the Martian atmosphere. Results for uncoupled and coupled flow-radiation simulations are presented, highlighting the effects of radiative cooling on flowfleld and wall fluxes.
