Strong and Mild Ignition Mechanism behind Reflected Shock Waves in Hydrogen Mixture


A reflected shock wave in two-dimensional shock tube is studied numerically using Navier-Stokes equations with the detailed oxy-hydrogen reaction mechanism. The results show detailed process of mild ignition. The interaction between the reflected shock wave and the boundary layer yielded behind the incident shock wave produces clockwise and counter-clockwise vortices. These vortices generate compression waves. The future study related wall conditions (adiabatic or isothermal) will be shown at the conference site.
