PSAAP @ Stanford
The overall objective of the Stanford's PSAAP (Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program) Center is the Quantification of Margins and Uncertainties (QMU) of an air-breathing hypersonic vehicle with a special focus on the prediction of off-design, transient conditions and their associated failure modes. In particular the Center focuses on the unstart phenomenon (sudden engine stall) due to thermal choking in the HyShot II scramjet.
Air-breathing hypersonic vehicles are envisioned as a means for reliable low-cost access to space. These vehicles are highly integrated systems whose performance depends on complex physics and the interactions between all of their components. Such performance-critical systems cannot be predicted with today's state-of-the-art simulation capabilities: a radically new integrated approach is required.
