Pagination or Media Count:
Energy transfer in chemically reacting boundary layer flows is discussed from the point of view of the investigator, who is seeking to extend existing correlation formulae to cases in which thermochemical effects influence heat transfer rates. Emphasis is placed on the prediction of convective heat fluxes in high performance rocket motors however, examples are also taken from the field of hypersonic gas dynamics, as follows the ppropriate driving force for heat transfer with chemical reaction, effects of the enhanced efficiency of energy transport by diffusion as compared to ordinary conduction, calculation of the turbulent film conductance in axisymmetric nozzles, thermodynamic calculation of enthalpymixture-ratio charts for combustion gas mixtures, effects of chemical non-equilibrium in the gas phase, effects of surface catalyzed exothermic recombination reactions, extimation of transport properties in partially dissociated gas mixtures with emphasis on the binary diffusion coefficients pertaining to molecular fragments.
