  author={Tagelsir Mustafa Abdelsalam and Robert George Carson},
Numerical study is conducted to investigate a dual-mode scramjet combustor. The geometry is similar to the University of Virginia’s dual-mode combustor. The length of the combustor ducts 10 ramp heights “H”. Hydrogen, methane and ethylene are used in the current study. Fuel is injected through single unswept ramp with aspect ratio of 0.5. Predicted results of nonreacting flow as well as for reacting flow are presented. Results are obtained with a grid size of about 400,000 cells. Results of… CONTINUE READING
