EU FP7-Project TFAST - Transition Location Effect on Shock Wave Boundary Layer Interaction
The Project TFAST is funded by the European Union. The main objective is to study the effect of the transition location on the structure of shock-boundary layer interaction. One main question is how close the induced transition may be to the shock wave while still maintaining a typical turbulent character of interaction. Main study cases are - shock waves on wings/profiles, turbine and compressor blades and supersonic intake flows.
The work of DLR Göttingen is confined to measurements at a turbine stator in the Wind tunnel for Straight Cascades. Following measuring techniques will be applied:
