Abstract: 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…
