Abstract:

This work has addressed the question What is the effect of nonequilibrium chemical reactions on separated hypersonic flow The model used to generate the separate flow is a hypersonic shock waveboundary layer interaction on a flat plate in a high enthalpy flow. The flow was calculated by means of a finite-difference, time-marching solution. The results show that nonequilibrium effects can be important in the separated flow region, and that future applications should be aware of such effects. Keywords Separated flow, Non-equilibrium, Shock-waveboundary layer, Boundary layer interaction.
