Title Effects of Passive Porous Walls on the First Mode of Hypersonic Boundary Layers Over a Sharp Cone.
Publication Date Jan 2013
Media Count 32p
Personal Author S. O. Stephen V. Michael
Abstract A theoretical linear stability analysis is used to consider the effect of a porous wall on the first Mack mode of a hypersonic boundary layer on a sharp slender cone. The effect of curvature and of the attached shock are included for axisymmetric and non-axisymmetric disturbances. The flow in the hypersonic boundary layer is coupled to the flow in the porous layer by the porous wall model admittance. We considered the effect of the phase angle of the admittance of a circular pore model on the first Mack mode. We further considered the effect of two other wall models, a high porosity rectangular mesh microstructure model and a low porosity model comprising of spanwise grooves with varying thickness, on the linear and weakly nonlinear stability of the flow.
