DNS of a Mach 4 boundary layer with chemical reactions

Abstract

A direct numerical simulation (DNS) database is used to develop a greater understanding of the turbulence-chemistry interaction in hypersonic boundary layers. It is found that exothermic reactions increase the turbulent dissipation near the wall, the large turbulent structure inclination angles, and the magnitude of turbulent fluctuations. This increases the magnitude of the turbulent fluctuations. The opposite is found for endothermic reactions in the boundary layer.
