Abstract

The quasi-one-dimensional method for the dual-mode scramjet (DMR) of the hypersonic RBCC powered vehicle was simplified in most of open researches. Furthermore, these simplified method can not fully capture the processes of wall heat transfer, changes in the boundary layer and the ratio of specific heat and the transonic flow in the reacting flow. Addressing this problem, we establish the models for processing core flow area, transonic flow and pre-combustion shock train (PCST) based on the governing equations for quasi-one-dimensional flow and certain assumptions. Thus the quasi-one-dimensional model of dual-mode scramjet engine that incorporates the changes in wall heat transfer and in the ratio of specific heat is built. Then, the reliability and accuracy of the model are assessed qualitatively and quantitatively by experiment and CFD numerical simulation. There is a high agreement between the theoretical calculations and the results of experimental data and CFD numerical simulation. This work expands the application scope and increases the reliability of quasi-one-dimensional model of dual-mode scramjet engine in RBCC engine. The results shed new light on the preliminary performance assessment and engineering application of dual-mode scramjet engine.
