------------------------- -------- 20 ME 525 Exam #2 7 April 2011 Name 1. The diagrams below pertain to premixed detonations and premixed flames. (a) (10 points) In the diagram below, the ZND structure of a detonation wave is plotted. The three unlabeled curves are the normalized density ~,pressure P , and temperature PI ~ T Label the three curves correctly and justify (briefly) your answers. Hint: If you T; have trouble with this solve problem #3 and then come back to this problem. - - - *"*- . ... - - - - 10 ~ I I 1 I J.------. I I I ~----------~ t I _____________ I ,~_~ I'" ......

Also plot is consistent with results of problem #3. In the reference frame attached to the detonation wave, indicate whether the Mach numbers at locations 1, 1', 1", and 2 are equal to 1, less than 1, or greater than 1.

(b) (6 points) In the diagram below, the results of a numerical calculation of the structure of a premixed CH4/air flame (low-speed deflagration) with an equivalence ratio of 1.0 are plotted as a function of axial distance from the burner surface. The three unlabeled curves are the mole fractions of CO, C02, and CH4, all multiplied by 10.
