Soot deposition from fuel rich hydrocarbon combustion products on solid walls is investigated numerically for laminar stagnation point flow and laminar flow parallel to a fiat plate. Numerical predictions of soot deposition are made by solving the coupled momentum, energy, and soot transport equations, which include the effects of variable transport properties and thermophoretic transport (i.e. mass transport down a temperature gradient) of soot particles. The transient deposition rate for typical liquid rocket engine gas generator conditions is shown to decrease due the thermal resistance of the soot layer.
