Model reduction of aerothermodynamic for hypersonic aerothermoelasticity based on POD and Chebyshev method

Accurate modeling of aerothermodynamics with low computational cost takes on a crucial role for the optimization and control of hypersonic vehicles. This study examines three reduced-order models (ROMs) to provide a reliable and efficient alternative approach for obtaining the aerothermodynamics of a hypersonic control surface. Coupled computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational thermostructural dynamics (CTSD) approaches are used to generate the snapshots for ROMs considering the interactions between aerothermodynamics, structural dynamics and heat transfer. One ROM adopts a surrogate approach named Kriging. The second ROM is constructed by the combination of Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and Kriging, namely, POD-Kriging. The accuracy of Kriging-based ROM is higher than that of POD-Kriging-based ROM, but the efficiency is lower. Therefore, to address the shortcomings of the above two approaches, a new ROM is developed that is composed of POD and modified Chebyshev polynomials, namely, POD-Chebyshev. The ROM based on POD-Chebyshev has the best precision and efficiency among the three ROMs and generally has less than 2% average maximum error for the studied problem.
