 The workshop is organized by the Working Group “Radiation of High Temperature Gas” (WG RHTG) settled by CNES and ESA. The workshop is sponsored by ESA Technology Directorate as well as ESA Science Directorate and by CNES through the Research & Technology program.

The meeting is devoted to promote a dialogue on the state of the art for simulation/modeling and experimental techniques of hypersonic radiating gas flows. In this frame, a limited number of test cases will be validated with respect to efficiency and accuracy of different methods and experimental approaches, for the determination of radiative heat fluxes encountered during atmospheric entry. It is foreseeable that new areas for future research will be indicated as a result of this workshop.

2016, the workshop will be held at the Institute of Space Systems (IRS) of the University of Stuttgart organised by the High Enthalpy Flow Diagnostics Group. The workshop takes place in the Space Center of Baden-Württemberg.


  • Scientific and technical papers on:
  • Non Equilibrium Chemical Kinetics
  • Hypersonic Flow
  • Plasma Emission and Absorption
  • Numerical Simulation of radiative heat transfer
  • Instruments, experimental techniques and facilities
  • Flight Experiments
  • Radiation Transfer

Invited papers of general interest for RHTG

  • Test-cases, which are organized in three topics:
  • Radiation emission & transfer databases and models
  • Re-building of selected radiative emission and absorption experiments
  • Numerical axially symmetric test-cases for non-equilibrium flow and radiation emission and absorption calculations

Preparation of future  test-cases:

  • Identification of suitable experimental results, relevant literature data and previous re-building activities
