Comparative Studies of Different Schemes of Iodine Injection in a High Efficiency Supersonic COIL Academic Article uri icon


  • ABSTRACT We report on comparative studies of different mixing schemes in a supersonic COIL which, when combined with improved operation of a jet singlet oxygen generator, led to achieving very high chemical efficiency. Spatial distributions of the gain, temperature and I2 across the flow were studied for transonic and supersonic schemes of the iodine injection in a slit nozzle supersonic COIL as a function of the iodine and secondary nitrogen flow rate, jet penetration parameters and gas pumping rate. The mixing efficiency for supersonic …
