Theory of turbulence augmentation across hypersonic shock waves in air

Poster presented in the 28th International Colloquium on the Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems.

Theory of turbulence augmentation across hypersonic shock waves in air

The interaction between a weakly turbulent free stream of air and a hypersonic shock wave is investigated theoretically by using linear interaction analysis (LIA). The perturbation-free jump conditions across the shock are computed using Combustion …

Theory of turbulence augmentation across hypersonic shock waves

The interaction between a weakly turbulent free stream and a hypersonic shock wave is investigated theoretically by using linear interaction analysis (LIA). Modified Rankine-Hugoniot jump conditions that account for dissociation and vibrational …

Development of an open-source thermochemical code: Fundamentals and application to shock turbulence interaction problems in the hypersonic regime

In this seminar, we present the development of an in-house thermochemical code (hereafter Combustion-Toolbox) that can be applied to gaseous combustion problems. The code stems from the minimization of the Gibbs–Helmholtz free energy by using …
