Paper Abstract

Flows over double cones and wedges featured with a large shock induced separation zone are representative of many parts of hypersonic vehicle geometries. To be practically important at shock interactions is phenomena that the shock wave produced from another objects carries out incidence to bow shock around a blunt body in the hypersonic flows, the two shock waves interact each other and various shock interactions occur according to the intensity of the shock wave and depending on the case of the local maximum of pressure and heat flux is locally produced on the body surface. The six types of shock interactions are classified, and particularly in the Type IV, a shear layer generated from the intersection of the two shock reached on the body surface, and locally anomalous pressure increase and aerodynamic heating occurred experimentally. In the present study, unsteady shock oscillations and periodically separation flows were visualized by means of high-speed video camera. Particularly, sequential observations with combination of schlieren methods are very effective because of flow unsteadiness.
