Abstract
On the basis of developed physical and mathematical model for thermal nonequilibrium chemical processes involving electronically excited molecules the analysis of the mechanisms resulting in initiation of combustion in closed reactor and detonation in supersonic flow behind inclined shock wave in H2+O2(air) mixtures at excitation of the (see paper for formula) states of oxygen molecules by resonant laser radiation with wavelengths (lambda) equals1.268 micrometers and 762 nm has been carried out. The numerical analysis has shown that induced by laser radiation excitation of O2 molecules leads to significant decrease of the autoignition temperature and allows to initiate detonation at very low temperature (~500 K) behind shock wave at relatively small values of laser radiation intensity. Excitation of (see paper for formula) state by laser radiation is more effective to influence on combustion kinetics and initiation of detonation in supersonic flow.
