Abstract
Singlet oxygen generators are multiphase flow chemical reactors that produce energetic oxygen to be used as a fuel for chemical oxygen iodine lasers. In this paper, a theoretical model of the generator is presented that consists of a twophase reacting flow model that treats both the gas phase and dispersed (liquid droplet) phase. The model includes the discretization over droplet size distribution as well. Algorithms for the robust solution of the large set of coupled, nonlinear, partial differential equations enable the investigation of a wide range of operating conditions and even geometric design choices.
