“Anomalous” nonlinear wave phenomena in a supersonic boundary layer
- 23 Downloads
Nonlinear evolution of high-amplitude periodic disturbances in a boundary layer on a flat plate for Mach numberM=2 is studied. An anomalous downstream evolution of the disturbances is found, quasi-two-dimensional disturbances being most unstable. The obtained phase velocities of the waves are 30–40% greater than the phase velocities of the Tollmien-Schlichting waves. The nonlinear evolution of vortex waves is accompanied by an increase in steady disturbances from the source of controlled vibrations. High-frequency disturbances decay, and a periodic wave train degenerates downstream into a quasiharmonic wave train.
