Abstract:

This report pertains to the detailed kinetics governing premixed, laminar, one-dimensional hydrogennitrous oxide flames. The long range goal is to understand the kinetics governing propellant decomposition, where nitrogen chemistry is important. Hydrogennitrous oxide flames are the simplest case of a flame controlled by nitrogen chemistry. A model has been developed for premixed, laminar, one-dimensional hydrogennitrous oxide flames. Results have been compared with a range of experimental data. The present model roughly reproduces the data, but inaccuracies still exist. Sensitivity and screening analyses have been used to indicate the additional experimental data needed to improve the model. Keywords Burning Velocity.
