Abstract:

Work during the three-year project timeframe has been focused on 1-1 completing the construction of an arc-heated hypersonic combustion test rigACT-1 at the University of Notre Dame ND, 1-2 characterizing turbulent flame dynamics under various supersonic and hypersonic freestream conditions Mach 4.5, 6 and 9, and 1-3 developing tools for quantitative turbulent flow measurement methods in collaboration with Dr. Campbell D. Carter of AFRL including a new laser diagnostics technique for simultaneous fuel concentration and gas density measurements in supersonic combustors, and 1-4 controllingquantifying freestream turbulence and evaluating its influences on the turbulent flame dynamics in the high-Reynolds scramjet flows
