4 Conclusion

The paper presents the ONERA computational chain PHARAON for the numerical simulation of radiative heating. The chain is operational for martian reentry applications. First test results on a generic vehicle demonstrate the importance of the radiative heat flux on the rear part of the vehicle, due to the infrared radiation of CO and CO2 molecules.

Further extension of the computational chain PHARAON is now in progress, in particular for Earth reentries.
