Abstract

Numerical simulations of the flow in a GOX/HTPB hybrid rocket engine are carried out with a Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes solver including detailed gas surface interaction modeling based on mass and energy balances. Fuel pyrolysis and heterogeneous reactions at the nozzle wall are modeled via finite-rate Arrhenius kinetics. Global mechanisms are considered for the gas-phase chemistry for the combustion of 1,3-butadiene in oxygen. Results show the role of the gas-phase chemistry modeling and surface boundary condition modeling on the solution. The coupling between the mixing and combustion processes in the flowfield and the thermochemical erosion of a graphite nozzle is finally discussed, showing the effect of the temperature and chemical species distributions in the wall region.
