Abstract:

The work reported herein represents the first phase of a fundamental study of subsonic and transonic flow separation. The transonic flow wind tunnel which was specially modified for this study is described. The experimental effort includes studies of the flow over forward and rearward facing steps and shallow cavities. Such configurations are taken to be representative of flow separation over an airfoil. Theoretical work on predicting transonic flows with separation are also reported.
