Linear Theory of Hypersonic Shocks Interacting with Turbulence in Air

Oral presentation in the 2023 AIAA SciTech Forum

Combustion Toolbox: A MATLAB-GUI based open-source tool for solving gaseous combustion problems

In this work, we present the development of a new thermochemical code (hereafter Combustion Toolbox, CT) that can be applied to gaseous combustion problems, even with condensed species. The kernel of the code is based in NASA’s Chemical Equilibrium …

Amplificación de la turbulencia a través de una onda de choque en régimen hipersónico

Short talk (b) presented in the 9th ''Congreso Nacional de I+D en Defensa y Seguridad''.

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 …

Combustion Toolbox: A MATLAB-GUI based open-source tool for solving gaseous combustion problems

In this work, we present the development of a new thermochemical code (hereafter Combustion Toolbox, CT) that can be applied to gaseous combustion problems, even with condensed species. The kernel of the code is based in NASA’s Chemical Equilibrium …

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 …

Theory of turbulence augmentation across hypersonic shock waves

Oral presentation in the 74th Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics

Combustion Toolbox is now available for testing

In the poster presented at the XI Mediterranean Combustion Symposium we introduced our first steps toward the development of an open-source wider-scope thermochemical tool. It’s been a while since then and we’re excited to say that Combustion-Toolbox (CT) is now available for testing.

Thermochemical effects of gas dissociation and vibrational excitation on hypersonic shock waves interacting with weak turbulence

The interaction between a weakly turbulent free stream and a hypersonic shock wave is investigated theoretically by using linear interaction analysis (LIA). The formulation is developed in the limit in which the thickness of the thermochemical …
