This paper presents the implementation of a state of the art Navier-Stokes code CFD-FASTRAN capable of simulating flow in thermochemical non-equilibrium. CFD-FASTRAN models the fluid as a reacting gas in chemical and thermal non-equilibrium using standard finite rate chemistry models and a two-temperature model for the gas. To validate, a code-to-code comparison between LAURA code and CFD-FASTRAN was carried out.
