Study of Interaction between Supersonic Flow and Rods or Jets Surrounded by Porous Cavity


In this experiment, the effects of the combination of jets or rods and a porous cavity on the supersonic flow field are studied by means of visualization of schlieren method and the measurements of wall static pressures and the flow direction in the cavity with the thermal tuft probe. Three cases of jets or rods arrangements are tested in the experiments. As a result, a bow shock wave which is generated by the jets or rods is observed by mean of schlieren method. And it is confirmed that the expansion region appears downstream of the rods but is not in case of the jets pattern. Moreover the pressure ratios of starting shock wave passing through porous cavity for jets pattern differ from that of rods pattern. In the cavity, the flow direction at the measurement position in the cavity is always opposite to the main flow, as long as the starting shock wave is located upstream of the porous cavity for all cases. Difference in the backward flow ratio between the jets and rods patterns is observe after the starting shock wave passes through the porous cavity.
