With renewed interest in the development of civil supersonic aircraft, their return in the future is becoming more ever more likely. The environmental impact of emissions in the stratosphere on climate and the ozone layer therefore needs to be explored. The stratospheric ozone levels determine the amount of harmful ultraviolet radiation reaching...

At speeds roughly between five and ten thousand km/h, hypersonic aircraft offer the promise of an extremely fast means of transport. Growing concerns about climate warming, however, direct attention to sustainability. This thesis focuses on atmospheric composition and radiation changes by considering a range of individual hypersonic aircraft...

Wall-resolved large-eddy simulations (LES) are performed to investigate Reynolds number effects in supersonic turbulent boundary layers (TBLs) at Mach 2.0. The resulting database covers more than a decade of friction Reynolds number Re<sub>τ</sub>, from 242 to 5554, which considerably extends the parameter range of current high-fidelity...

A series of numerical simulations was executed using the high-performance cluster at TU Delft's Aerospace Faculty. The primary objective was to gain deeper insights into the intricate dynamics of a sonic transverse jet in a supersonic crossflow with an oblique induced shock wave, especially concerning mixing. These simulations delved into the...

While physics-informed neural networks have been shown to accurately solve a wide range of fluid dynamics problems, their effectivity on highly compressible flows is so far limited. In particular, they struggle with transonic and supersonic problems that involve discontinuities such as shocks. While there have been multiple efforts to alleviate...

TOP contoured nozzles, with large area-ratios, are commonly employed in rocket propulsion systems as they feature an excellent thrust-to-weight ratio. A significant shortcoming to this design is that, during the startup and shutdown transients of a LRE, the internal nozzle flow progresses through a series of overexpanded flow states - Free Shock...

During the start-up and shutdown sequence of rocket engines, immense forces are generated that are required to propel the payload into earth's orbit or outer space. The bulk of the generated forces are in the form of thrust. However, forces are also generated that act perpendicularly to the thrust direction. These side-loads are unwanted...

Mathijssen, Lucas (author)
Supersonic panel flutter is a self-excited vibration, where energy is transferred into thin flexible panels, such as skin panels in supersonic vehicles, from the (supersonic) flow around them, which can lead to their rapid fatigue failure. Relevant examples of this include the failure of skin panels in the X-15 vehicle, or violent oscillations...

We perform direct numerical simulation of supersonic turbulent channel flow over cubical roughness elements, spanning bulk Mach numbers -, both in the transitional and fully rough regime. We propose a novel definition of roughness Reynolds number which is able to account for the viscosity variations at the roughness crest and should be used...

The flow over a forward-facing〉 step (FFS) at Ma<sub>∞</sub> = 1.7 and Re<sub>δ0</sub> = 1.3718 × 10<sup>4</sup> is investigated by well-resolved large-eddy simulation. To investigate effects of upstream flow structures and turbulence on the low-frequency dynamics of the shock wave/boundary layer interaction (SWBLI), two cases are considered:...

Depletion of stratospheric ozone, and the associated increase in population exposure to UV radiation, is an environmental consequence of high-altitude, supersonic aviation. Assessments of the impacts of emissions from subsonic aircraft – which fly at lower altitudes – have instead shown that they produce a net increase, rather than decrease,...

 Distributed surface roughness elements characterise Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) typical of supersonic and hypersonic flows. The presence of these distributed roughness elements cause an increase in drag and heat transfer.  As opposed to incompressible flow over roughness elements, there are very few experimental and numerical studies on...

Supersonic intakes are essential in assuring proper combustion for operating ramjet engines on cruise missiles. However, due to increasing threats and a rapidly changing service environment, today's intakes do not fit anymore to comply with the new set of requirements to tackle the above challenges. Therefore, a novel supersonic intake design is...

The supersonic split line (SSSL) nozzle has been considered for years in the use of solid rocket motors. The SSSL nozzle is an attractive alternative to the more conventional submerged movable (SM) nozzle. The SSSL nozzle can save up to 43% on nozzle mass and 25% on the thrust vector control (TVC) system mass. The SSSL nozzle also has the...

The development of air-breathing propulsion systems as a mean to propel high-altitude high-speed transport and single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) vehicles promises to be a viable alternative to chemical rocket propulsion. In order to enhance mixing, an oblique shock wave is introduced into the combustion chamber as a source of baroclinic vorticity as...

A quantitative assessment of the acoustic source field produced by a laboratory-scale heated jet with a gas dynamic Mach number of 1.55 and an acoustic Mach number of 2.41 is performed using arrays of microphones that are traversed across the axial and radial plane of the jet's acoustic field. The nozzle contour comprises a method of...

Transverse jet injection into supersonic crossflows is encountered with Aerospace applications such as fuel injection in Supersonic Combustion Ramjet (SCRamjet) engines and reaction-jet-based attitude control systems. In particular, for the case of SCRamjets, the short residence times of the fuel in the combustion chamber can be countered by the...
