Abstract

© 2018, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA. All rights reserved. Wind tunnel experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of vortex generators on a corner flow separation caused by an interaction between a normal shock wave and the boundary layer in a Mach 1.4 flow. The shape of the vortex generators was rectangular. The vortex generators were mounted on a bottom wall of the test section. The parameters of the vortex generators were the rotation direction of the vortex, their size and their location. When the leading edge of the vortex generators turn towards the corner, the effect of the vortex generators on the corner flow separation decreased monotonically as the vortex generators size decreased. An independent separation appeared on the bottom wall in the case. When the leading edge of the vortex generators point in the opposite direction, the flow structure was changed by the size and the location of the vortex generators. We categorized the flow structures into three modes. The effect of the vortex generators and the three modes were successfully collapsed with the location parameter normalized by the second power of the scale parameter.
