Suppression of Low-Frequency Shock Oscillations over Boundary Layers by Repetitive Laser Pulse Energy Deposition
AbstractThe effect of repetitive energy deposition on low Strouhal number oscillations of the shock wave induced by boundary-layer interaction over a cylinder-flare model was studied. The fluctuation of the energy deposition frequency was induced in the flow, because the bubble generated by the energy deposition flowed downstream along the surface repeatedly. The region before the bubble size was affected by the energy deposition directly, so the fluctuation frequency was equal to the energy deposition frequency. However, the flare shock behavior at a position farther from the surface than the bubble size was also affected strongly by the energy deposition. For low-frequency unsteadiness and the effect of energy deposition on its unsteadiness, two categories have been observed. In the relatively small flare angle case, the flare shock was oscillated owing to the fluctuation induced by the boundary-layer interaction at the shock foot, and its oscillation occurred at 2.1 kHz with a small amplitude. The amplitude of this oscillation was decreased by highly repetitive energy depositions, and its amplitude could not be detected at a highly repetitive energy deposition. In the longer cylinder section case, the region of the shock-wave interaction was widened, and the amplitude of the flare shock oscillation was increased. In this case, the amplitude drastically decreased because of energy deposition. View Full-Text
