All rights reserved.A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) study is conducted to investigate the unsteady, turbulent supersonic cavity flow characteristics and to control the severe effects of the flow field. Simulations of Mach 1.5 supersonic cavity flow with a length to depth ratio of 5.07 are performed using commercial ANSYS Fluent solver. Unsteady density-based Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations are modeled with standard k-ω turbulence model. Both baseline simulations with no control and simulations with passive and active control methods are examined. Implemented passive control methods are trailing edge wall inclination, cavity entrance cover plate, and wall spoilers. Microjet blowing is applied as an active control method. For further investigation of the flow field and to distinguish the dominant features of the controlled and uncontrolled cases, Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) is applied to velocity data obtained from the inside of the cavity. CFD and POD studies represent promising results for flow control in terms of suppressing undesired effects of cavity flow oscillations.

© 2020, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA. All rights reserved.Shock Wave / Boundary Layer Interaction is an important issue that should be taken into account when studying inlet design. Bleed holes have traditionally been used to remove the lower momentum part of the boundary layer to avoid separation from adverse Shock Wave / Boundary Layer Interaction. In this study, modeling of porous bleed holes investigated in computational fluid dynamics on a flat plate with and without an ...

All rights reserved.Due to its excellent insulation capability, usage of silica-phenolic charring ablator as nozzle liner is a common practice in solid rocket motor industry. During the design of a solid rocket motor employing silica-phenolic as nozzle liner, it is desired to conduct an accurate analysis yielding in-depth thermal response and recession characteristics. As the interior ballistics and nozzle recession rate mutually interact...

In this paper, a methodology is presented to perform such test in an efficient way. Experimental design process is carried out before the testing in order to cover the flight regime as much as possible with the least possible number of tests. After the determination of the test matrix and conducting the wind-on tests, the ...
