Structure of a Mach 8 turbulent boundary layer Conference Paper uri icon


  • 1997 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc. Preliminary measurements of the effects of increasing Mach number on the structure of turbulent boundary layers are presented. The data were obtained using a Mach 2.5 pilot tunnel facility and a new Mach 8 boundary layer facility. The principal diagnostic technique was planar Rayleigh scattering. The results shed some light on the effects of Mach and Reynolds number on outer layer intermittency.
