Abstract

The ability of microramps to control shock - boundary layer interaction at the vicinity of an axisymmetric compression corner was investigated computationally in a Mach 4 flow. A cylinder/flare model with a flare angle of 25° was chosen for this study. Height (h) of the microramp device was 22% of the undisturbed boundary layer thickness (δ) obtained at the compression corner location. A single array of these microramps with an inter-device spacing of 7.5h was placed at three different streamwise locations viz. 5δ, 10δ and 15δ (22.7h, 45.41h and 68.12h in terms of the device height) upstream of the corner and the variations in the flowfield characteristics were observed. These devices modified the separation bubble structure noticeably by producing alternate upwash and downwash regions in the boundary layer. Variations in the separation bubble’s length and height were observed along the spanwise (circumferential) direction due to these devices.
