Flow Visualization on Lateral Multiple Jet Interaction with Freestream
Abstract: The interaction flowfield of gaseous jets ejecting from three different orifice configurations into a Mach 5 turbulent crossflow over a flat plate was investigated experimentally. These jet configurations have equal equivalent throat diameter of 6 mm and nominal exit Mach number of 3. Schlieren photography was used to visualize the spatial flow structures; meanwhile surface oil flow patterns were employed to identify the separation and reattachment regions on the flat plate. Results show the influence of the jet-to-freestream static pressure ratio and jet configurations on flow interaction characteristics.
