Research overview:
In "MUSES-C", the capsule that reenters atmosphere is used. Study has been performed to forecast the flight environment that this capsule type flight body experiences. Especially, relation between the accuracy of the transport coefficient used in the simulation and the accuracy of the forecast of the flight environment is clarified and the accuracy of the transport coefficient was improved to raise the forecast accuracy.
