Turbulent premixed combustion in a boundary layer
Abstract
A theoretical study is made of the structure of the fully turbulent boundary layer which is obtained by injecting a fresh reactant mixture through a porous flat plate into an incoming flow of hot products. The aerothermochemistry is described by a joint probability density function of the velocity field and the product mass fraction. The flow is described by means of similar solutions of the complete set of equations for mean quantities and second order correlations. The model is validated through a comparison with available experimental data, in the case of small heat release and moderate injection rate.
