Paper Abstract

In order to investigate the unsteady flow field around a spiked body in supersonic flow, time-resolved color schlieren visualization was applied using a high-speed video camera which could take up to 1 000 000 frames per second at full frame resolution. Conically and spherically tipped spikes of six different lengths could be attached at the center of the model and their effect on the flow unsteadiness was visually observed. The obtained images revealed in great detail the interaction between the incoming free stream flow and the high-pressure region near the model base, which could make its presence known upstream at the tip of the spike by means of displacing the boundary layer on the spike and subsequently inducing a large-scale instability of the flow.
