Introduction

Non-equilibrium radiative flow phenomenon is observed behind the strong shock waves generated by the re-entering space vehicles. This plays a crucial role in the design of the nose part of the re-entry space vehicle. To design the space vehicle effectively, it is important to study the characteristics of the radiating non-equilibrium flow phenomenon behind these strong shock waves. In order to find out the characteristics of this flow phenomenon experimental studies have been vigorously carried out by many researchers[1], [2].
