Abstract:

There are two overall objectives of the proposed research program. The first objective is to perform fundamental studies of microwave and combined microwavelaser energy deposition. The studies include characterization of the new microwave coaxial resonator at the University of Illinois, and development of kinetic-gas dynamic models for microwave and combined microwavelaser energy deposition in air. The second objective is to investigate practical applications of microwave and combined microwavelaser energy deposition for flow control in high speed flows relevant to the Air Force. These include control of 1 supersonic cavity flow 2 injection and mixing in a supersonic stream 3 supersonic vehicle aerodynamics, and 4 Edney Type-IV shock interaction. This work studies the use of laser energy deposition to control mixing in a jet in supersonic crossflow. Detailed comparisons with new particle imaging velocimetry data from the University of Illinois are presented.
