Chambers, Russel Allen
MetadataShow full item record
This study was undertaken to investigate the effects of varying the injectant temperature and molecular weight on the flow field generated by the interaction of a secondary jet with a supersonic mainstream. The experimental portions of this investigation were conducted at a primary Mach number of 1.92 in the Naval Postgraduate School Supersonic Wind Tunnel. Data are presented and compared with theory. This presentation includes correlation of the penetration height of the secondary flow, interaction side force amplification factor, and separation distance non-dimensionalized with respect to the penetration height.
