Investigation of the Unsteady Flow for the Supersonic Jet Element


Article Preview

The unsteady viscous flow of the supersonic jet element (SJE) was simulated numerically based on CFD technology. A dual time-stepping scheme and AMG scheme were employed to solve the unsteady flows in SJE, and the reasons of thrust fluctuation during the wall-attachment state of SJE are found out. Based on the pressure cloud and streamlines, the vortices generated by the unsteady flow on attached wall had also been investigated and drawn some conclusions.
