- The non-equilibrium plasma has unique advantages in ignition and combustion. In this paper, the plasma-assisted combustion scheme of the spacecraft rocket engine is designed. The numerical simulation method is used to study the influence of non - equilibrium plasma on the combustion in GH2/GO2 single co-axial injector rocket engine. Mainly to consider the plasma chemical kinetics, the discharge generated O, H and OH are added to the flow field as source term. The simulation results show that the temperature in the axial area increases with the increase of the chemical reaction rate in the combustion chamber, and the mixing effect of hydrogen and oxygen can be improved.
