Abstract:

The boundary layer thickness and displacement thickness were experimentally evaluated at the exit plane of an arc heated 9.492 inch exit diameter hypervelocity M or 8 contoured nozzle for both equilibrium and nonequilibrium flows. It was concluded that the boundary layers were turbulent and the use of a plenum chamber decreases the displacement thickness for identical arc heater stagnation chamber conditions. Author
