Experimental Study on Pressure Fluctuations in the Boundary Layer of an Axisymmetric Body
The characteristics of the fluctuating pressure in the boundary layer of an axisymmetric body have been investigated experimentally using dynamic pressure measurements and Schlieren photograghs. Data were acquired at subsonic and super-sonic Mach numbers. The angles of attack ranged from 0° to 5°. Pressure signals were measured simultaneously in several positions along the model and were analyzed both in the time and frequency domains. The Mach number shows the relevant influence on . Furthermore, the pressure fluctuations’ level decreases with the increasing of Mach number except M=1.15. And it is shown that, the location along the axis of the model and the angles of attack have small effect on pressure fluctuations.
