Abstract : Considerable insight into the complex processes occurring in laser cavities has been achieved through the use of a simple, single species invariant second-order closure model of the turbulent flow equations. However, this present program cannot consider the effects of the highly exothermic chemical reaction involved in an HF chemical laser. Substantial progress has already been made towards the development of the multi-component reacting program and this effort is continuing. (Author)
