Abstract:

A computer program for simulating coupled phenomena of propulsion-generated, chemically reacting, two-phase jet flow fields is described in detail. A sample calculation is performed using typical solid-propellant rocket motor operating conditions as input. The model contains approximations for turbulence, particle drag, chemistry, and particle supercooling. The particle phase change is simulated kinetically and includes two solid Al2O3 crystalline structures meta stable gamma and stable alpha forms.
