In this paper, a high-order Navier-Stokes solver is developed for chemically reacting flow and is applied to investigate the unsteady, viscous interaction between shock wave and boundary layer in an air filled shock tube. The solver employs a highresolution weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) scheme to capture the complex flow pattern induced by shock/boundarylayer interaction, together with a point-implicit method to overcome the stiffness of chemical production term. The results show
