Abstract:

A theoretical study of fluid flows with energy input is presented. Three problems are investigated 1 Uniform flow with heat addition in various bounded regions 2 unsteady cylindrical disturbances produced by a sudden energy release 3 compressible boundary layer growth with volume heat addition inside the boundary layer. The first problem is steady two dimensional flows with simply shaped heating regions. In the second part, the linear and non-linear behavior of a cylindrical disturbance produced by a sudden energy release is studied. In the linearized analysis, the characteristic method is used. Finally, the effect of heat addition on the boundary layer growth of compressible, laminar, transitional and turbulent boundary layer flow over a given body is studied.
