Abstract

In this study, direct numerical simulation of the flow around a sphere at the high Mach number and the low Reynolds number condition is carried out in order to investigate the flow properties. The three-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved on boundary fitted coordinate system. It is confirmed to have sufficient accuracy from the results of the previous study. Analyses are performed at the Reynolds number of between 50 and 300, the freestream Mach number of between 0.3 and 2.0, and the temperature ratio of the sphere surface and freestream of between 0.5 and 2.0. As the results, we clarified the following points: 1) the freestream Reynolds number and the temperature ratio influence the flow properties, 2) the effect of the temperature ratio can be summarized by the effective Reynolds number that is a newly proposed parameter.
