In 2002, the HyShot supersonic flight experiment was successfully launched and allowed to access experimental flight data for supersonic combustion. Ground based testing performed in the High Enthalpy Shock Tunnel (HEG) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) allowed to reproduce the Mach 7.8 flight conditions. The present numerical work focuses on the computation of the experiments in HEG considering flows with and without combustion and fuel injection. Further, variations of the equivalence ratio and the resulting influence on the flow topology are studied.
