Upstream effects of secondary injection on the profiles of a boundary layer over a flat plate.
Hofford, Robert Francis.
MetadataShow full item record
An account is given of the effect on the boundary layer of a secondary air flow directed normal to a flat plate immersed in a primary flow field of uniform velocity. System design and tunnel operation are discussed briefly. Boundary layer profiles are compared to existing theory and secondary injection effects are discussed. The work described in this thesis was initiated by the author following exposure to the field of jet interaction. Boundary layer conditions during portions of flight where the airstream is subsonic and jet interaction is the means of control posed the problem considered herein.
