Separated flow behind a backward-facing step under a stationary temperature disturbance

Separated flow behind a backward-facing step under a stationary temperature disturbance Abstract The flow in the separation region of laminar boundary layer behind a rectangular backward-facing step has been experimentally examined under temperature non-uniformity of the flow. The data were obtained in a subsonic wind tunnel at Reynolds numbers M ≪ 1. The temperature disturbance was generated using a system of Peltier elements provided on the model surface upstream of the separation line. The effect of heating/cooling of the wall on the mean and fluctuating flow components was evaluated using hot-wire measurements. The experimental data were supplemented with calculations of linear-stability characteristics of model velocity profiles in the separated boundary layer. As a result, the response of the separated flow to a stationary thermal perturbation was revealed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Thermophysics and Aeromechanics Springer Journals

Abstract

Abstract The flow in the separation region of laminar boundary layer behind a rectangular backward-facing step has been experimentally examined under temperature non-uniformity of the flow. The data were obtained in a subsonic wind tunnel at Reynolds numbers M ≪ 1. The temperature disturbance was generated using a system of Peltier elements provided on the model surface upstream of the separation line. The effect of heating/cooling of the wall on the mean and fluctuating flow components was evaluated using hot-wire measurements. The experimental data were supplemented with calculations of linear-stability characteristics of model velocity profiles in the separated boundary layer. As a result, the response of the separated flow to a stationary thermal perturbation was revealed.
