Aerothermodynamics analysis of Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) re-entry vehicle at low altitude has been studied numerically. At low altitude continuum approximation is valid due to high density region. The Favre averaging (density weighted averaging) procedure is applied to obtain the governing equations. The Favre averaged Navier-stokes along with Spalart-Allmaras turbulent model are used to compute flow field in high density region using open source CFD code SU2.
