Control of a supersonic reattaching shear layer

J. Poggie, A. J. Smits

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A reattaching supersonic shear layer was perturbed by transverse air injection, and the effects were investigated using flow visualization. It was found that shear layer mixing was increased and that the shock system was strongly disturbed due to the heightened three dimensionality of the flow. Mixing enhancement was also achieved in an incompressible downstream-facing step flow using the same blowing procedure.
