Abstract
A STUDY IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP MORE ACCURATE APPROXIMATE METHODS FOR PREDICTING FLOW SEPARATION PHENOMENA ON HYPERSONIC MANEUVERING AEROSPACE VEHICLES. EXPERIMENTAL DATA AND FLOW FIELD COMPUTATIONS WILL BE USED TO DERIVE IMPROVED SEMI-EMPIRICAL RELATIONS FOR INCIPIENT SEPARATION, SEPARATED REGION GEOMETRY, SURFACE PROPERTIES, AND FLOW FIELD PROFILES FROM SURFACE TO INVISCID EDGE OF THE SEPARATED REGION. THE MAJOR TYPES OF FLOW SEPARATION THAT WILL BE STUDIED INCLUDE LEESIDE, WINDWARD CONTROL SURFACES, AND SHOCK IMPINGEMENT ON ADJACENT SURFACES.
