Application of holographic interferometry to density field determination in transonic corner flow
Kosakoski, Robert Anthony
MetadataShow full item record
The successful application of holographic interferometry to the study of density fields around opaque bodies in wind tunnel experiments has been reported in the literature. The present report extends this technique to the study of the asymmetric flow fields encountered near the wing-fuselage junction of an aerodynamic model in the transonic flow regime. Finite fringe interferometry has been used to investigate the three dimensional density field about a partially transparent wing-body structure. The resulting asymmetric density field and shock wave structure are shown to be an accurate representation of the phenomena encountered in aerodynamic corner flow.
