NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF PARTICLE DYNAMICS IN THE HYDROGEN-AIR MIXING LAYER

Abstract

In this paper, supersonic plane turbulent mixing layer of gases with injection of solid particles is studied numerically. The gas phase are determined by DNS solving the multi-species Navier-Stokes equations in the Eulerian approach , and the dynamic of solid particles  are traced in the Lagrangian approach. The dynamics of hydrogen – air mixing and the formation of the vortex system in the mixing layer and its effect on the distribution of solid particles in the two free-flow speeds are investigated. The study focuses on detailed analysis an influence of the vortex system in the supersonic turbulent mixing layer on the dispersion solid particles with different size. The results show that heavy particles almost do not react to vortex structures. It is revealed that medium particles tend to accumulate along the circumference of the vortex and along the braid between the two vortices. A quasi-equilibrium state with a gas flow of light particles is established.
