Abstract
The theoretical and computational studies based on the novel physical and mathematical model of nonequilibrium chemical processes involving vibrationally and electronically exited molecules have shown that selective excitation of reacting species by laser radiation results in a considerable reduction of self-ignition temperature, decrease of induction and combustion times, and initiates detonation in supersonic flow at relatively low radiation energy inputted into the mixture. These effects are due to production of the novel channels of high reactive radicals formation and enhancement of chain mechanism of combustion and are not associated with the thermal action of absorbed radiation.
