Oscillating flow in a 2-D diffuser

Oscillating flow in a 2-D diffuser Separating oscillating flows in an internal, adverse pressure gradient geometry are studied experimentally. Simultaneous velocity and pressure measurements demonstrate that the minor losses associated with oscillating flow in an adverse pressure gradient geometry can be smaller or larger than those for steady flow. Separation is found to begin high in the diffuser and propagate downward. The flow is able to remain attached further into the diffuser with larger Reynolds numbers, small displacement amplitudes, and smaller diffuser angles. The extent of separation grows with L 0/h. The minor losses grow with increasing displacement amplitude in the measured range 10 < L 0/h < 40. Losses decrease with increasing Re δ in the measured range of 380 < Re δ < 740. It is found that the losses increase with increasing diffuser angle over the measured range of 12° < θ < 30°. The nondimensional acoustic power dissipation increases with Reynolds number in the measured range and decreases with displacement amplitude. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
