Investigation Of Wall Injectors For Supersonic Mixing Enhancement, Yaacov Haimovitch Jul 1994

Investigation Of Wall Injectors For Supersonic Mixing Enhancement, Yaacov Haimovitch

Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Theses & Dissertations

A comparative study of the interaction between wall mounted swept-ramp injectors and injector nozzle shape has been conducted in a constant area duct to explore techniques to enhance mixing in scramjet combustors. The scramjet combustors are currently being developed for propulsion systems applications on the envisioned hypersonic vehicles. Short combustor residence time, a requirement for fuel injection parallel to the main flow in the combustor, and an overall strong sensitivity of the vehicle performance to the propulsion system motivated the investigation. The swept-ramp injector investigated in this study produces vortex shedding and local separation downstream of the injector's nozzle ...
