A suite of computer codes, developed at the University of Minnesota, for the analysis of reacting hypersonic boundary layer stability has been used successfully by many different researchers in a wide range of applications. However, these applications have been limited by the software to the analysis of axisymmetric or two-dimensional flows or to analysis in the symmetry planes of three-dimensional flows. This paper introduces the latest version of the software suite which has been extended for the analysis of three-dimensional flows. Comparisons are made with the already well-tested two-dimensional version of the codes, and results are presented to illustrate the new capabilities for analysis of three-dimensional flows.
