MEASUREMENT OF VORTEX FLOWFIELDS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
Many supersonic aircraft generate vortices at highly-swept leading edges which generally augment the lift. however, our current understanding of vortex, viscous/inviscid interactions is insufficient to allow computational design without recourse to experimental documentation and confirmation. the… More

AN ASSESSMENT OF LASER VELOCIMETER POTENTIAL IN HYPERSONIC FLOWS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $494,000.00
Abstract:
At present, progress in computational fluid dynamics of highspeed flows is restricted by the need for experimental data which can be used for the development of empirical turbulence models and to validate navier-stokes codes. although some hot wire data have been obtained in previous years, they are… More
