Thermochemical effects of gas dissociation and vibrational excitation on hypersonic shock waves interacting with weak turbulence

In this study, the interaction between a weakly turbulent free stream and a hypersonic normal shock wave is investigated theoretically by using linear interaction analysis (LIA). The formulation is developed in the limit in which the thickness of the …

Effect of equivalence ratio fluctuations on planar detonation discontinuities

We propose a linear asymptotic theory to describe the propagation of planar detonation fronts through heterogeneous mixtures of reactive gases consisting of random fluctuations in the fuel mass fraction. The analysis starts with the derivation of the …
