Abstract
WATER TEST FACILITIES ARE CURRENTLY USED TO OBTAIN QUALITATIVE INFORMATION ABOUT MIXING FLOW FIELDS IN DUCTED RAMJET COMBUSTORS. THIS INFORMATION COMPRISES PHOTOGRAPHS OF FLOW STREAMLINES AND MEASUREMENTS OF RESIDENCE TIMES FOR FUEL AND AIR WITHIN THE COMBUSTOR. THE MEASUREMENT OF VELOCITY VECTORS AND GRADIENTS WITHIN THE COMBUSTOR FLOW FIELD WOULD GREATLY ENHANCE CURRENT TEST RESULTS. TO AVOID DISTORTING THE MEASUREMENT, A NON-INTRUSIVE MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUE SUCH AS LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETRY (LDV) IS REQUIRED. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL EXPERIMENTALLY TEST AND VERIFY THE APPLICATION OF LDV TO MIXING FLOWS IN WATER. A SIMPLE TEST APPARATUS AND LDV SYSTEM WILL BE USED FOR THE PHASE I TESTS TO PROVE THE CONCEPT AND MEASUREMENT ACCURACIES.
