Abstract

Interaction of a jet from a 60 Ibf thruster positioned on the side of a small rocket, with the rarefied atmosphere at 100 and 80 km is studied numerically. The direct simulation Monte Carlo method was applied to model the three-dimensional jet-atmosphere interaction. Chemical reactions between free stream and plume species were included in the simulations. A two-stage numerical strategy was used, with sequential computations of an axisymmetric plume coreflow and three-dimensional plume-freest ream interaction. The impact of altitude, angle of attack, rocket velocity, and thrust, on flow fields and surface mass fluxes is analyzed.
