Journal ArticleDOI

Accumulation of errors in numerical simulations of chemically reacting gas dynamics

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors investigate problems of numerical simulations precision and stochastic errors accumulation in solving problems of detonation or deflagration combustion of gas mixtures in rocket engines.
Journal ArticleDOI

Hydrogen fuel rocket engines simulation using LOGOS code

TL;DR: In this article, the results of computer code developing, verification and validation, making it possible to simulate unsteady processes of ignition and combustion of hydrogen fuel in rocket engines are developed.
Journal ArticleDOI

Modeling and simulation of hydrogen combustion in engines

TL;DR: In this paper, a verification and validation of the chemical kinetic models for hydrogen oxidation were carried out through investigations on the ignition delay time on pressure, temperature, and equivalence ratio for hydrogen-oxygen mixtures.
Journal ArticleDOI

Evaporation and ignition of droplets in combustion chambers modeling and simulation

TL;DR: In this article, the non-equilibrium effects in droplets atomization and phase transitions are taken into account in describing thermal and mechanical interaction of droplets with streaming flows, and the behavior of individual droplets in a heated air flow allowed to distinguish two scenarios for droplet heating and evaporation.
Journal ArticleDOI

Detonation engine fed by acetylene–oxygen mixture

TL;DR: In this article, a modified ka-omega turbulence model is used to simulate flame acceleration in the Shchelkin spiral section of the system, and the results of numerical simulations were compared with experiments, which had been performed in the same size detonation chamber and turbulent spiral ring section, and with theoretical data on the Chapman-Jouguet detonation parameters.
