Abstract
The proposed STTR research targets the development of innovative aerodynamic concepts/techniques that contribute significantly to advancements of next-generation super-maneuverable air vehicles. Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) will be implemented in a hypersonic short -duration wind tunnel to control the boundary layer, and advanced laser diagnostic techniques such as Digital Particle Image Velocimetry (DPIV) and Pressure Sensitive Paint (PSP) will be used to provide a fundamental understanding of the flow field. The database from these experiments will be used to develop a neural-network-based hypersonic prediction method and to validate CFC codes. The proposed research will launch a feasibility study, followed by actual development of innovative sensors, actuators, and advanced non-intrusive laser-based diagnostic instruments for hypersonic flow fields.
