The aerodynamic aspects will focus on the properties of large-scale structures in situations of interest for aeronautics and aerospace. They will include compressible turbulence, laminar/turbulent transition, shock wave stability and shock interactions.
The physico-chemical aspects will include real gas effects: relaxation, kinetics and transport phenomena, with particular attention to physico-chemical and radiative processes in compressed and expanded flows. Non equilibrium flows in external or internal aerodynamics will also be considered.
