AbstractWe investigate reactive and non reactive strained flows associated with high pressure cryogenic rocket engines. A detailed high pressure fluid model based on thermodynamics of irreversible processes, statistical mechanics as well as kinetic theory of dense gases is used. This model insures the positivity of chemical entropy production and of molecular transport related entropy production. We first study the structure of a pseudo-vaporizing transcritical oxygen layer and the corresponding pseudo-vapori…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
