Temperature sensitive paint application for investigation of boundary layer transition in short-duration wind tunnels
Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) Zhukovsky, Str. 1 Zhukovsky, Moscow
Application of Temperature Senstive Paint (TSP) technology for investigation of boundary layer transition in short-duration wind tunnels is presented. Investigations were made on sharp and blunted flat plates in UT-1 wind tunnel of TsAGI operated in Ludwieg scheme at Mach numbers 5, 6, and 8 (Reynolds numbers from 5.5 · 106 to 26 · 106). Both natural and induced boundary layer transitions were investigated.
