The accuracy and efficiency are always conflict in the process of aerodynamic shape design, especially for hypersonic gliding vehicle (HGV). In this work, a rapid aerodynamic calculation method for hypersonic gliding vehicle is conducted, including shape parametric modelling, automatic mesh generation and rapid computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method. In details, the aerodynamic shapes of HGV are modelled by multi-section solids, which parameterized by class function/ shape function

Then, the computational meshes are generated automatically in two steps: one is generating surface mesh by Delaunay method, and another is generating volume mesh by adaptive Cartesian method. In order to minor the computational cost, the hypersonic aerodynamic are analysed by combining the Euler equation and the viscosity force. We have tested the accuracy and efficiency of this rapid aerodynamic calculation method in two flight states for a typical HGV. Compared with Navier Stokes (NS) equations, the results shown the errors of axial aerodynamic force are all less than 6%, but time costs are reduced in hundreds of times.
