Nonequilibrium in high enthalpy carbon dioxide flows

Ebrahim, Nizar Abdulla


A study of high enthalpy nonequilibrium flows of carbon dioxide is presented. Chemical and thermodynamic models are obtained for nozzle and model flows. A numerical survey of high enthalpy carbon dioxide nozzle expansions shows that the assumption of vibrational equilibrium is a good one, and that ionization is energetically insignificant up to a reservoir specific enthalpy of 3.3 x 10¹¹ cm² s⁻². It also shows that the reservoir entropy correlation observed to hold for air by Warren...[Show more]
