Large Eddy Simulation of Hydrogen-Fueled Supersonic Combustion with Strut Injection


Article Preview

In order to obtain more accurate simulation results and properties of combustion in supersonic combustion flow fields, modules of large eddy simulation of reactive turbulent flow and fifth-order WENO scheme was developed. Large eddy simulation of hydrogen-fueled supersonic combustion with strut injection was conducted. Simulations results compare were with experimental measurements, which including wall pressure, velocity, velocity fluctuation and temperature.
