Default Scramjet Combustion Model
Posts: n/a
I am wondering if anyone could give me any advice on the combustion model I should use for a scramjet? I am currently using a laminar finite rate model, but will probably change to a finite rate/eddy dissipation model soon.

I am just using the default hydrogen model. Are there any values I need to change, due to the high mach numbers I will be using (Mach 10 freestream, Mach 7 in chamber)

Also if anyone has any other advice that would help, that would be appreciated.

Thank you

I would recommend using the laminar finite-rate model with the coupled implicit solver. You might also want to try importing a detailed chemkin mechanism (File -> Import) such as this one...

(1) limitations of CHEMKIN-II format (specifically, an inability to implement ! temperature-dependent collision efficiencies in falloff reactions) ! and !
