Abstract

Experiments and numerical simulations have been performed on a novel method of shock wave/boundary layer interaction control. A series of thin flaps, termed mesoflaps, were placed over a cavity directly beneath the impingement point of an oblique shock wave in Mach 2.5 supersonic flow. The passive system produced a significant degree of control of the SBLI including improved stagnation pressure recovery and boundary layer properties downstream of the interaction. The aeroelastic fully viscous numerical simulation of the experimental configuration confirmed general observed trends and also specific improvements in boundary layer properties downstream of the interaction.
