Comparison of Detailed Chemical Models of Hydrogen Combustion in Numerical Simulations of Detonation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Four detailed chemical mechanisms used to describe detonation combustion of hydrogen in oxygen are considered. Ignition delays for various temperatures and pressures are found, the Chapman–Jouguet velocity is determined, and the Zel’dovich–von Neumann–Döring solution for different models is obtained. The effect of dilution of the stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and oxygen by an inert gas is estimated. Direct numerical simulation of detonation wave propagation in a channel is performed. The emergence of instability of the plane wave and formation of a cellular (multifront) structure are studied. The results predicted by different chemical models are analyzed and compared with each other and with available experimental data.
