DIMOTAKIS, P. E. & HALL, J. L. 1987 "A simple model for finite chemical kinetics analysis of supersonic turbulent shear layer combustion," AIAA/SAE/ASME/ASEE 23rd Joint Propulsion Meeting, Paper 87-1879.


A simple flow/thermodynamic model is proposed to describe finite chemical kinetic rate combustion in a turbulent supersonic shear layer for the purposes of assessing Damkohler number effects in such flows. Sample calculations and comparisons for the H2/NO/F2 chemical system and the H2/air system are described for a set of initial flow and thermodynamic conditions of the entrained reactants.
