AbstractThe numerical simulation method, developed at Keldysh Research Center, is used for the research into special features of the working process in sub-scale combustion chambers of the LRE propelled by oxygen and hydrocarbons (kerosene). The chambers using jet-centrifugal injectors and operating to the gas-liquid scheme are considered. The influence of structural parameters and operating conditions of injectors, and also of the jet interaction on processes of flow, mixing, combustion was studied.
