Application of finite difference TVD methods in hypersonic aerodynamics. The numerical method for solving of the hypersonic nonequilibrium aerogasdynamics problems is suggested. The method is based on the full three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations, supplemented by the equations of chemical kinetics and the finite difference TVD method. The developed algorithms are implemented in the computer-aided software package SIGMA. The results of simulation of the hypersonic flow about the spherical nose segment of a model hypersonic vehicle are presented.
