3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

The    fluid   dynamics    of
chemically  reactive mixtures  are  calculated  at arbitrary  flow
speeds  with  the  RICE-LASL  program.   Application  is  made  to
continuous  wave HF  chemical  lasers  to compute  the  supersonic
mixing  and  chemical reactions  that  take  place in  the  lasing
cavity.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The dynamics   are  governed   by  the   two-
dimensional, time-dependent Navier-Stokes  equations together with
the species transport equations and the mass-action rate equations
for the chemical  reactions.  The mass and  momentum equations for
the mixture are solved implicitly by the Implicit Continuous-fluid
Eulerian  (ICE) technique.   The equations  for  total energy  and
species transport  are solved explicitly  while the  chemical rate
equations are  solved implicitly  with a time-step  that may  be a
submultiple of the hydrodynamic time-step.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

0.0006 seconds of CDC7600 time/cell/cycle for single component fluids is required. This varies with increased species and chemical reaction.
NESC0720/01
NEA-DB executed the test case included in this package  on a CDC CYBER 740 computer in 64 seconds of CPU time.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

RICE-LASL allows  triangular and
rectangular obstacles, with  or without inflow boundaries,  in the
computing mesh.
