Abstract:

Hypersonic Wake transition data over a range of reynolds numbers have been obtained over the past several years at many laboratories. In the present paper, the available experimental data is structured into three laws The Law of the Far Wake, The Law of the Near Wake, and The Law of the Interpolation Regime. These three laws are then represented on a single Hypersonic Wake Transition Map. The Reynolds number is selected as the correlating parameter, where local conditions, characterizing the state of the gas at transition are used for the property values. The correlating constant is determined from the ballistic range data. For high Mach number flows, binary scaling allows the representation of the Reynolds number as a pressure times a length.
