Laboratory of Mathematical Modeling of Nonlinear Processes in Gas Environments
This laboratory was established as part of a scientific research project supported with a monetary grant awarded by the Government of the Russian Federation under a grant competition designed to provide governmental support to scientific research projects implemented under the supervision of the world's leading scientists at Russian institutions of higher learning (Resolution of the RF Government No.220 of April 9, 2010).
Grant Agreement No.: 11.G34.31.0072
Name of the institution of higher learning:
Federal state budget educational institution of higher professional learning "Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (state university)"
Fields of scientific research:
Mechanics and control processes
To design numerical models of hypersonic streams surrounding rotating spacecraft alongside their entire entry trajectory.
Key project objectives:
To design models of thermochemically and thermodynamically unbalanced physical-chemical processes, low-density gas streams, turbulent streams, and heat and mass exchange. The project is unique in that it ensures an optimal combination of sufficiently accurate physical models and highly efficient computational algorithms for their implementation. Chemical reactions will be numerically modeled using an optimal combination of balanced and unbalanced models. Turbulent streams and low-density gas streams will be modeled using advanced domain decomposition methods based on nonlocal boundary equations. The software complex will be implemented using modern multiprocessor computers.
Anticipated scientific outcomes:
When performing series of computations, this approach makes it possible to significantly reduce computation time yet retain computation accuracy. A highly efficient and reliable software package will be the project's final product.
