Methodologies to predict practical high-speed compressible flows are best developed from a fundamental understanding of the dynamics of benchmark flows, as well as a mathematical framework consistent with the fundamental governing equations. In this talk, some representative direct numerical simulation results are presented for a supersonic boundary layer flow with and without an impinging shock. This includes a brief discussion of the numerical and computational domain related issues. Supplementing the numerical simulations, an analysis is presented showing the unique behavior of the pressure-strain rate correlation obtained from considering a convective wave equation for the disturbance pressure field rather than a pressure Poisson equation as in the incompressible case. Implications for model development are discussed throughout.
