Formatted Abstract/Summary
A numerical investigation of oxygen enriched combustion within a hypervelocity
scramjet was performed using two-dimensional Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes
simulations. The simulations modelled previous oxygen enrichment experiments in a
simplified scramjet flow-path. It is shown that oxygen enrichment significantly affects the
mixing and combustion characteristics within a scramjet combustor. Simulation results
indicate that combustion efficiency of the scramjet improved beyond the amount expected
from the O2 premixed with the fuel reacting with the stoichiometric quantity of H2.
