Abstract:

The source terms of the chemical rate equations for air ionization processes which occur in hypersonic wakes are perturbed, and then averaged. The resulting expressions are grouped such that the rate equations retain the form of mean-flow equations, but with modified rate constants which depend on various correlations of flow property fluctuations. The processes considered are N O reversibly yields NO e- and 202 e- reversibly yields O2 O2-. order of magnitude quantitative estimates are shown for the apparent rate constants. Author
