Abstract : The paper summarizes the status of recent analytical studies on the fundamental aspects of the diffusional mode of supersonic combustion. Emphasis is on the use of the hydrogen-air (or hydrogen-oxygen-diluent) fuel oxidizer system. Included are discussions of (1) diffusion flames assuming (a) infinite chemical reaction rates and (b) comparable chemical reaction and diffusion rates, (2) premixed flames, and (3) the feasibility of improving aerodynamically the mixing process and diminishing the induction distance.
