Laminar boundary layer separation at a fin-body junction in a hypersonic flow

Houwing, A Frank; Smith, David; Fox, J; Danehy, Paul; Mudford, N


Planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) imaging was performed to visualize the fin bow shock, separation shock, viscous shear layer and recirculation region of the flowfield at the junction of a blunt fin and a flat plate. Making use of the temperature dependence of the PLIF technique, images were made sensitive to temperature to provide qualitative information on the flowfield. The PLIF technique was also used as the basis for a flow-tagging technique, making it possible to measure a velocity...[Show more]
