Numerical Simulation of High-Speed Non-equilibrium Flow with Applied Magnetic Field
The paper describes the development and testing processes of a modification of an existing solver for hypersonic reacting flow within the OpenFOAM numerical simulation framework. The modification is suited to simulate the interaction between the flow and the constant applied magnetic field. The purpose of the development is to create a simulation tool for the study of the concept of magnetohydrodynamical flow control and its possible technological applications. Resulting application utilizes Navier-Stokes-Fourier system of equations supplemented with appropriate auxiliary models for the accurate assessment of process-specific additional terms. Solver testing has been carried out using the cases that highlight solvers capabilities to model MHD high-speed flow in different regimes.
