We completed all 3 phases of the project. The first phase Mach 2.3 study was published in Phys. Rev. Fluids in 2018. The second phase helping DLR design their Mach 7.4 experiment was completed primarily during the second year and presented at the 2019 AIAA Scitech meeting. This experiment will now be conducted at DLR during 2020. The final phase of this project was to extend the DNS study to the hypersonic regime in order to understand how the effect of wall-cooling changes with Mach number. This was done by performing DNS of an existing Mach 5.0 experiment from DLR, which confirmed some findings from the Mach 2.3 study but also showed significant differences in the scaling of the interaction length. These findings are currently under review for the Phys. Rev. Fluids journal.
