Annotation

The numerical simulation of the ignition process of a supersonic flow of a preliminary mixed propane-air mixture by electric discharge, with respect to power, geometry, and the duration of energy input, was carried out via a two-dimensional thermo-chemical model. The ignition thresholds evaluated in the framework of this model were in agreement with the experimental values of power density and induction duration.
