Rarefied hypersonics : HERA workshop

HERA stands for Hypersonique des Ecoulements RAréfiés (rarefied hypersonic flows). The workshop, which took place on October 14 and 15 at ONERA’s Fauga-Mauzac experimental site, addressed the issue through some fifteen 30-minute presentations, leaving ample time for interactive exchanges, which were greatly appreciated. The thirty or so people present during the two days devoted to […]


HERA Workshop (14-15 Oct 2021)

The workshop « Rarefied hypersonic flows” is scheduled from 14 to 15 October 2023. HyFAR-ARA is one of this event’s partners. The workshop, organized by ONERA in partnership with CEA and HyFAR-ARA, will take place at ONERA facility of Le Fauga-Mauzac (close to Toulouse, France). The objective is to gather a community of scientists, engineers […]
