One-dimensional nonequilibrium air flow

  • V. P. Stulov

A solution is found for the problem of steady quasi-one-dimensional air flow in a stream tube with nonequilibrium chemical reactions, ionization reactions, and nonequilibrium excitation of the vibrational degrees of freedom in the molecular components. We consider the inverse problem: for a given pressure distribution find the distributions of all the other gas-thermodynamic quantities and the streamtube sections. The use of an implicit scheme for approximating the equations makes it possible to carry out the calculations over the entire range of variation in the degree of nonequilibrium — from the frozen state to equilibrium. We discuss the nature of the variation in temperature, vibrational energies, and component concentrations along the stream tube. A numerical analysis is made of the transition to equilibrium flow.
