Multi-Physics Modeling

To address the simulation needs of hypersonic flight in the upper atmosphere, Moshman Research is developing a coupled rarefied gas-thermal-structural interaction (RGTSI) code which combines two NASA owned software packages. The Multiphysics Algorithm with Particles (MAP) uses a Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method and this will be integrated with the Fully Implicit Ablation and Thermal Analysis Program (FIAT).
