Two-phase particle-laden turbulent flow in a 2D rocket engine model
Sabrina Kalenko studies the two-phase particle-laden turbulent flow in a 2D rocket engine. The main questions relate to the turbulence increase/decrease due to the inertial particles. The important parameter in this flow is the geometry of a rocket engine that adds specific features of a) acceleration of the flow into the nozzle, b) impact and restitution of inertial particles at high velocities and moving at large angles in respect to the streamlines of the flow.
We have submitted our work to the Int. J. Multiphase Flow and posted it on the open science repository. https://engrxiv.org/j86f7/
