Scramjet Design Optimization

Air-breathing high-speed propulsion in the form of a scramjet—a supersonic combustion ramjet—promises to revolutionize global transport and access to space. The Center for Exascale-enabled Scramjet Design (CEESD) will develop physics-faithful predictive simulations enabled by advanced computer science methods to leverage massive-scale computational resources, in order to advance scramjet designs that leverage advanced high-temperature composite materials.
