Abstract

A computer model has been developed to analyze the flow of a dissociating gas through a porous metal matrix. The program predicts the transient temperature distributions through the coolant gas and matrix along with the pressure distribution and mass flow rate. The differential equations used in developing the program are documented in the literature of represent logical extensions of documented equations. The derivation of the finite difference equations is presented. Comparisons of experimental data with computer predictions are shown and indicate that the predictions fall within the experimental error in the data. A source listing of the computer program is contained in the Appendix.
