Professor Pino Martin unveiled new numerical methods that enable the study of turbulent flow physics relevant to reusable launch vehicles and scramjet engines during her keynote lecture on "Turbulent Hypersonic Flows: Physics and Simulation" presented at the West East High Speed Flow Field Conference (WEHSFF) organized by the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, Russia in November 2007. Professor Mart?n?s groundbreaking work on refashioning a class of numerical methods for the simulation of highly compressible flows has enabled efficient, accurate and detailed solutions of turbulence. Her research group in the Cluster for Research on Complex Computations (CRoCCo) Laboratory is able to develop solutions in a matter of days relative to the previous capabilities, which required about a year to turn solutions around. The effective simulation capability has enabled the CRoCCo Laboratory to dig into and answer questions that have remained unanswered for the past 40 years, such as details on the mechanisms governing the unsteady interaction between turbulent boundary layers and shock waves. The new data and analyses will have a significant impact in the development of efficient supersonic combustion, affordable space access and atmospheric hypersonic flight.
