Monte Carlo (DSMC) method is presented. Following the recent work of Bird  an approach known as the quantum kinetic (Q-K) method has been adopted to describe chemical reactions in a 5-species air model using DSMC procedures based on microscopic gas information. The Q-K technique has been implemented within the framework of the dsmcFoam code, a derivative of the open source CFD code OpenFOAM. Results for vibrational relaxation, dissociation and exchange reaction rates for an adiabatic bath demonstrate the success of the Q-K model implementation in dsmcFoam when compared with analytical solutions for both inert and reacting conditions. A comparison is also made between the Q-K and total collision energy (TCE) chemistry approaches for a hypersonic flow benchmark case.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Open Source DSMC Chemistry Modelling for Hypersonic Flows'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
