Colorful fluid drawing of a cone traveling hypersonically

Colorful fluid drawing of a cone traveling hypersonically

Running an experiment with some very basic geometry to see the capabilities of Solidworks Flow Simulation in analyzing a shape traveling mach 5+.

The cone is 4 inches tall and 2 inches wide at the base, to roughly simulate the tip of a rocket nose cone at a severe Max-Q. Fluid is air at STP.
