Parametric Study Of A Pulsed Vertical Jet In Cross-Flow, Guillaume Francois Bidan Jan 2008

Parametric Study Of A Pulsed Vertical Jet In Cross-Flow, Guillaume Francois Bidan

LSU Master's Theses

The potential of pulsed vertical jet in cross-flow for film cooling purposes was experimentally studied and is discussed in this Thesis. A single vertical jet placed in laminar cross-flow conditions was first characterized in steady state at relatively low blowing ratios ranging from 0.150 to 0.600, using Mie scattering visualization methods and hot-wire measurements. Wavelet spectral analysis and image quantification algorithms were applied to the velocity records and averaged visualizations to obtain quantitative data on the jet characteristic frequencies, penetration and coverage. Two different regimes characterized by different structures are identified and adapted scaling variables are provided. Trends ...
