Welcome to the FUN3D Retropropulsion Data Portal

This dataset consists of the results from 6 FUN3D simulations run on Summit at Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility. The runs simulate retropropulsion - using rocket motors to decelerate a space vehicle as it enters a planetary atmosphere. These simulations in particular are in support of research and development of entry systems capable of delivering humans to the surface of Mars.
