Abstract

The Configuration Based Aerodynamics (CBAERO) software package is used to predict the convective and radiative heating environments for the Space Shuttle Orbiter, the Apollo reentry vehicle, and the Fire II reentry test vehicle. CBAERO is an engineering level analysis tool for predicting the aerodynamic and aero-thermodynamic environments about complex vehicles across the subsonic to hypersonic Mach number range. The convective, radiative, and partially catalytic surface methods used in CBAERO are discussed. The present results are compared to both high fidelity CFD solutions and flight test data.
