Numerical investigation of an oxyacetylene torch with regards to an ablative material used in re-entry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

A computational fluid dynamic software is used to study an oxyacetylene torch employed as a screening facility for high temperature material testing. The model uses a computationally efficient one step reaction mechanism. First, a published test-case is used to verify the approach. The results produced using the present model fall within 5% of the published results for heat flux and surface temperature. The approach is then used to model an existing experimental facility.
