Equilibrium flows of reacting gas mixtures
Abstract
At local thermochemical equilibrium the chemical production rate is determined by the flow, not by kinetic relations as in the general case of nonequilibrium flow. This requires a different system of equations for the calculation of the flow field. At equilibrium the balance equations for the chemical components of a multicomponent mixture are substituted by balance equations for the elements together with equilibrium relations. The equilibrium production rate is treated for a hypersonic boundary layer flow of air consisting of the components N2, O2, NO, N, and O.
