Abstract:

Experimental and analytical studies of subsonic flow over a backward facing 2-D step and in a cylindrical simulated dump combustor were conducted. A laser velocimeter was used to obtain mean velocities and turbulence quantities. A method for detecting and eliminating velocity bias errors in such measurements was developed. The 2EFIX computer code used for numerical modeling predicted the mean velocity field satisfactorily, but was less effective in computing turbulence quantities. Author
