Measurement of confined supersonic, 2-d jet lengths using the hydraulic analogy Academic Article uri icon


  • In this study, inviscid, confined supersonic and subsonic stream interactions are studied using a hydraulic analog experiment. Specifically, the length of the first minimum location of the slipline is measured. Reasonable agreement is shown between a theoretical model and analog measurements. A method for extending the isentropic limited hydraulic analogy to model these inherently non-isentropic flows is also developed.
