Abstract:

The study of the laminar mixing of chemically reacting streams is presented with emphasis on the nonsimilar and nonequilibrium aspect of the problem. A mixture of dissociated and ionized air species with seven components and eleven reaction models N, O, N2, O2, NO, NO, e- is considered. Results show the importance of nonequilibrium production of electrons in the mixing region, and that the shear layer will take many shear layer thicknesses to reach equilibrium. The numerical example shows the rapid increase of atomic species and electrons along the dividing streamline due to diffusion from the top layers. Author
