Abstract:

Hypersonic chemically reacting flow around a wedge in the near-continuum regime was numerically studied by the DSMC method with the main goal of validation of real gas effect models. The influence of vibration-dissociation coupling on the results of numerical simulations was analyzed. To this end, two models of chemical reactions were used in the computations, the total collisional energy model and a vibrationally favored model. The numerical results were compared with the experimental data of Hornung and Smith on the shock-wave stand-off distance in a hypersonic flow around the wedge. Sensitivity of simulation results to chemical reaction rate constants was also estimated.
