With the advent of the modern day computer, the study of high speed aerodynamics has become synonymous with the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics.

These techniques not only permit the study of complex fluid flows at actual flight Reynold’s numbers and enthalpy levels, they have all but replaced, for certain flight conditions, the need for the astronomically expensive high speed wind tunnel facilities of the 20th Century.

MARCOM possesses significant experience in the analysis of these flows extending all the way from subsonic flight regimes to the complex chemically reacting environments encountered during hypersonic reentry of spacecraft.

Complementing these advance techniques, MARCOM has also developed simplified, in-house, analytical and computational methods which provide high level, first order design and benchmarking data.
