Fast Algorithms for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
The results of the Phase I effort has identified the feasibility of real-time hardbody thermal solver algorithms on high performance hardware for use by MDA applications and real-time hardware-in-the-loop environments. Phase II development of the thermal solver will be expanded to include complex targets by expanding upon the techniques prototyped in Phase I. A new inline Parallel Euler Solver with Boundary Layer Correlations method will be explored to support an in-line flow field solver. The dynamic generation of broad-band radiance maps in FLITES for computation of the environmental heat flux will be explored. Develop a real-time interface for inline interaction of FLITES with the new thermal solver solution. Modeling ablation and thermal chemistry will be developed in a manner consistent with the thermal algorithm implementation, such that real-time performance is maintained. Verification and Validation plan will be developed as well as a full suite of documentation. Acceptance testing and reporting will also be provided at each developmental milestone.
