- The ability of the WIND Navier-Stokes code to predict the physics of multi-species gases is investigated in support of future high-speed, high-temperature propulsion applications relevant to NASA's Space Transportation efforts. Three benchmark cases are investigated to evaluate the capability of the WIND chemistry model to accurately predict the aerodynamics of multi-species chemically non-reacting (frozen) gases. Case 1 represents turbulent mixing of sonic hydrogen and supersonic vitiated air. Case 2 consists of heated and unheated round supersonic jet exiting to ambient. Case 3 represents 2-D flow through a converging-diverging Mach 2 nozzle. For Case 1, the WIND results agree fairly well with experimental results and that significant mixing occurs downstream of the hydrogen injection point. For Case 2, the results show that the Wilke and Sutherland viscosity laws gave similar results, and the available SST turbulence model does not predict round supersonic nozzle flows accurately. For Case 3, results show that experimental, frozen, and 1-D gas results agree fairly well, and that frozen, homogeneous, multi-species gas calculations can be approximated by running in perfect gas mode while specifying the mixture gas constant and Ratio of Specific Heats.
