New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge

Manned Hypersonics

Team: 109

School: Sandia Preparatory

Area of Science: Aronautical engineering and fluid modeling

Proposal: Team 109

In short, I plan to design a new manned hypersonic aircraft capable of ferrying cargo about 8,000 miles at about mach 5. This we be completed most likely by using Overflow, a computational fluid dynamics software package. I would like to be able to include waveriding in my hypersonic vehicle, but I may not be able to. One of the biggest challenges will be designing a hybrid turbofan/scramjet engine so that the aircraft can take off and get to altitude and speed before using the scramjet.
