Abstract

This paper examines the shock cell structure, vorticity and velocity field at the exit of an underexpanded jet nozzle using a hydraulic analogy and the Reference Image Topography technique. Understanding the flow in this region is important for the mitigation of screech, an aeroacoustic problem harmful to aircraft structures. Experiments are conducted on a water table, allowing detailed quantitative investigation of this important flow regime at a greatly reduced expense. Conventional Particle Image Velocimetry is employed to determine the velocity and vorticity fields of the nozzle exit region. Applying Reference Image Topography, the wavy water surface is reconstructed and when combined with the hydraulic analogy, provides a pressure map of the region. With this approach subtraction of surfaces is used to highlight the unsteady regions of the flow, which is not as convenient or quantitative with conventional Schlieren techniques. This allows a detailed analysis of the shock cell structures and their interaction with flow instabilities in the shear layer that are the underlying cause of jet screech.
