The physical modelling and the numerical simulation of the critical reentry phase of hypersonic space vehicles are important areas of aerospace research. Eight specific problems of aerodynamics and thermodynamics were chosen as the central topics of this workshop. In these two volumes bothexperimental and computational data are collected along with comparative reviews presented at the meeting by international experts in the field of hypersonic flows. The books will be an important reference and the data will be valuable for numerical simulations of hypersonic flows and theirapplications in physics and engineering.
