The gravitational acceleration yields high speed and high energetic re-entries; therefore, temperature values reach enormous degrees. Modelling high speed hypersonic flow such as re-entries requires consideration of all physical phenomena and that of appropriate numerical modelling. Because of high energetic species, real gas assumption is used to define species state characteristics instead of ideal gas assumptions. Chemical, thermal and vibrational nonequilibrium modelling is the main consideration of this study.
