THERMAL AND CHEMICAL EFFECTS IN WAKES,

Pagination or Media Count:
The far-wake, the regions in which diffusive phenomena become important and boundary-layer phenomena can be approximated, is discussed quantitatively. The thermal and chemical effects bearing on observable phenomena are discussed, along with the fluid mechanical factors that these effects depend upon. Topics include scaling, similitude, and orders of magnitude temperature distributions and electron densities in far-wakes calculated with coupled diffusion and detailed rate chemistry of multicomponent air effects of differing values of the Lewis and Prandtl number three-dimensional effects streamwise pressure gradient effects and unsteady effects.
