A two-dimensional axisymmetric ray tracing photon Monte Carlo radiative transfer solver is developed. Like all ray tracing Monte Carlo codes, the ray tracing is performed in 3-D, however, arrangements are made to take advantage of the 2-D nature of the problem, to minimize computational time. The solver is designed to be integrated into finite volume hypersonic flow solvers, and is able to resolve the complex spectral properties of such flows to line-by-line accuracy. The solver is then directly integrated into DPLR, a hypersonic flow solver, and closely coupled calculations are performed.
