Paper Abstract

Analysis of heat release into operative gas of Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL) is discussed. Pooling reaction of oxygen molecules in the excited state, the iodine dissociation process and the interaction of them with water vapor release energy of in the excited state oxygen molecules as heat energy. As results of heat release in the plenum, a rise of the total pressure as a rise of the total temperature is observed, and in the supersonic region a rise of static pressure and a decrease of total pressure as a rise of total temperature are observed. By following our analysis technique regarding pressure data of three different nozzles, the evaluations such as energy loss in a duct from a Singlet delta Oxygen Generator (SOG) and the number of dissipated oxygen molecules for the iodine dissociation can be estimated.
