Ignition Transient of Supercritical Oxygen / Kerosene Combustion System

  title={Ignition Transient of Supercritical Oxygen / Kerosene Combustion System},
  author={Dohun Kim and Keun-Oh Lee},
The propellants of large liquid rocket engine are mixed and burned in supercritical pressure and temperature condition. Generally, the critical temperature and pressure of liquid rocket engine propellants are much lower than the propellant feed, injection and combustion condition [1-3]. In the super-critical condition, the distinction between liquid and gas phase would be obscure, and the thermodynamic and fluid-dynamic properties of both a liquid phase (high density) and a gas phase (low… Expand
