Modeling of relaxation processes in air flows behind shock waves

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Non-equilibrium flows of a reacting five-component air mixture consisting of 2, 2, , , behind shock waves at different altitudes from the earth's surface at different speeds of the incoming flow are numerically investigated. One-temperature mathematical model of non-equilibrium air flows is applied. The distributions of flow quantities behind the shock wave fronts are obtained and analyzed. The relaxation lengths of flow quantities are compared for various Mach numbers and altitudes.
