Abstract

The reduction of aerodynamic heating by opposing jet was experimentally investigated. Geometric ratio of diameters and Mach numbers were fixed, and the flow stability was determined by the total pressure ratio of freestream to opposing jet. It was observed that the reduction of aerodynamic heating caused by the opposing jet proved to be quiet effective at the nose of the blunt body. As the pressure ratio is increased, the heat flux decreases over the model surface, and remarkable reduction of aerodynamic heating was observed in nose regions at high pressure rate.
