Application of Micro Electro-Mechanical Sensors and Activators in the Investigation of Supersonic Jet Screech( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An investigation aimed at examining the usability of MEMS based actuators for controlling supersonic jet screech has been conducted. First, documentation of the screech phenomenon in the newly constructed high speed jet facility (HSJF) at IIT has been completed. Results from microphone measurements complemented with earlier shadowgraph and schlieren visualization have shown that the screech characteristics in the HSJF conforms with that published in the literature. Second, detailed investigation of the first generation MEMS actuators showed that the actuators could not operate for speeds higher than 70 m/s while maintaining contact with the jet shear layer. This was attributed to the bending moment acting on the actuator due to flow loading on the overhanging head portion of the device. This observation was confirmed utilizing a special headless actuator design. The outcome of the tests of the first generation devices guided the development of a second generation of actuators. Those actuators, which are also described within this report, are currently being evaluated
Equipment to Upgrade the Facilities of the IIT (Illinois Institute of Technology) Fluid Dynamics Research Center( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We are currently approaching the completion of the National Diagnostic Facility at IIT. The facility is based on a computer-controlled wind tunnel with a test section 4 ft. high, 5 ft. wide and 36 ft. long exhibiting very high quality flow conditions under both constant and oscillating free-stream velocity conditions. The funding of this facility was initiated under a 1983 DOD University Research Instrumentation Program (AFOSR-Grant-83-0339). A key aspect of the wind tunnel design is the manner in which heat energy produced by fan inefficiencies, is removed from the recirculating tunnel air. This involves the first use of turning vanes which also act as heat transfer elements. The system is sized to allow continuous operation of the wind tunnel at speeds of 250 fps, which is 2.5 times those of common university wind tunnels, and two hours of operation at the maximum tunnel velocity of 550 fps. This new and unique facility will be dedicated to basic research at near-flight Reynolds numbers, thereby, aiding in the design of the next generation of aircraft. The equipment acquired under this Grant has made many of these objectives become realities. Keywords: Laser doppler anemometer, Data acquisition. (edc)
Investigation of the Physics of Screech in Supersonic Jets and Turbulent Boundary Layers at High Reynolds Number and Control of Separation Through Oscillatory Blowing( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a flapped NACA 0015 airfoil, measurements of static pressure and lift, with and without oscillatory forcing from the leading edge and flap, demonstrated effective separation control and lift enhancement over the range 0.1<M<0.4. Measurements showed that the lift increment was sensitive to the dimensionless forcing frequency. Additionally, a suction pressure coefficient of nearly -5.0 was produced on a previously stalled airfoil at M=0.4, indicating a region of supercritical flow on the airfoil, and suggesting that oscillatory blowing is a viable separation-control technique under compressible flow conditions. Using both the NDF test-section floor boundary layer and a suspended axisymmetric body, a range of momentum thickness Reynolds numbers of 7000<Re<50000 was investigated with a hot-wire anemometer. Streamwise mean and rms velocity and spectra in these boundary layers showed good agreement with established scaling observations. An increasing separation of scales and the appearance of a second low-frequency spectral peak were observed indicating a clear discrimination between inner and outer scales at high Reynolds number. Although some dependence on both axial and momentum thickness Reynolds number was observed, there appeared to be a linear relationship between friction velocity and free-stream velocity over this wide range of Reynolds numbers
A PIV System for Time-Resolved Measurements at High Reynolds Numbers in the National Diagnostic Facility( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The necessary equipment for a two camera DPIV system was purchased. It included two cameras, two frame grabbers, a PC based computer, a laser and shutter, optics for the camera, optics for the laser, a workstation for computational processing, and control and signal conditioning electronics. A unique feature of this system is the utilization of special cameras which allow externally synchronized acquisition of two frames separated by only 1- 5 microns, permitting cross-correlation PIV analysis for flows up to 250 m/s. The DPIV system has been put together and tested in the Mark V Morkovin wind tunnel at IIT. Comparison between the statistics of the resulting velocity field and earlier hot-wire measurements in the same wind tunnel reveals the ability of the new DPIV system to provide high spatial resolution measurements with high accuracy. The new system is currently being adapted for use in the National Diagnostic Facility (NDF) at IIT
Active Control of Supersonic Jet Screech Using MEMS( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary objective of this research is to investigate the usability of mechanical actuators, manufactured using MEMS technology, in the control of high-speed, compressible free shear flows. Appropriate development of MEMS-based actuators for flow control applications must address two issues: (1) the ability of the micron-size amplitude and forces of the MEMS devices to affect larger-scale flows with orders of magnitude higher energy, and (2) the survivability of the fairly fragile actuators when they are exposed to the flow in which they are embedded. Therefore, the current investigation is aimed at testing MEMS actuators for the purpose of controlling supersonic jet screech. For this application, the high-speed, highly-unsteady nature of the flow during screech provides a reasonably harsh environment for testing the survivability of the actuators. Furthermore, the shear layer surrounding the jet at its exit is known to be highly unstable to minute disturbances in the vicinity of the lip of the jet, and hence it is anticipated that the micron-size disturbances introduced by the MEMS actuators will be amplified through the shear layer instability mechanisms to produce large scale effects on the jet itself
