Abstract: 

Authors offered a method of calculation and carried out the study of aerodynamic characteristics of perspective hypersonic aircrafts. The method and the calculation system developed allow to study physics of the flight of random objects at all stages of the flight trajectory: from orbital trajectory to landing regime. In particular, authors investigated aerodynamic characteristics of real hypersonic aircrafts within the Russian project «Clipper» and US project «Falcon HTV-2».

Keywords: 
space technology, hypersonic aircrafts, transitional regime aerodynamics, Reynolds number, locality hypothesis
