Investigation of hypersonic nozzle flow uniformity using NO fluorescence

O'Byrne, Sean; Danehy, P; Houwing, A Frank


Planar laser-induced fluorescence visualisation is used to investigate nonuniformities in the flow of a hypersonic conical nozzle. Possible causes for the nonuniformity are outlined and investigated, and the problem is shown to be due to a small step at the nozzle throat. Entrainment of cold boundary layer gas is postulated as the cause of the signal nonuniformity.
