STEADY-STATE SIMULATION STUDY OF THE FLOW INDUCED BY AN INTERNALLY PROPELLED VEHICLE IN AN INFINITE TUBE: SUPERSONIC VEHICLE

The flow induced in the wake of an internally-propelled supersonic vehicle or of a disturbance moving supersonically through an infinite tube is analyzed as a steady one-dimensional flow in the frame of reference of the vehicle or disturbance, with full amount of heat transfer and dissipative effects. The governing equations are solved numerically. The results confirm that the flow can be steady if it is everywhere supersonic relative to the vehicle or disturbance. (Author)
