Technologies for Safe and Controlled Martian Entry

Objective

The main objective of the study is the experimental and numerical study of gas surface interaction phenomena in the high enthalpy flow field behind the bow shock in front of a model at Martian entry flow conditions. The improvement of physical modelling using experimental data and its implementation into the CFD codes is essential to understand and interpret the physical processes. At the end the project will allow to estimate the aerothermal loads on the vehicle more accurately. Main activities of the project are:
-Definition of requirements on experiments, modelling and CFD codes using realistic Mars mission profiles
-Experiments on the measurement of flow parameters in the free stream and behind the shock and stagnation point heat flux rate
-Improvement of existing physical models with respect to the non-equilibrium effects, transport properties and gas surface interaction chemistry
-Implementation of improved physical models into the CFD codes and simulation of experiments
-Synthesis of the data and extrapolation to the flight
