Numerical study of mixing in an air-breathing rocket engine
- 76 Downloads
A method of increasing the efficiency of mixing in an air-breathing rocket engine is discussed. Three-dimensional simulations confirm the advantages of the proposed method based on using normal supply of products of incomplete combustion of a pasty propellant into the wake zone behind a bluff body in an air flow.
