Stabilization of the hypersonic boundary layer by finite-amplitude streaks
2016 (English)In: 54th AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
Stabilization of two-dimensional disturbances in hypersonic boundary layer flows by finite-amplitude streaks is investigated using nonlinear parabolized stability equations. The boundary-layer flows at Mach numbers 4.5 and 6.0 are studied in which both the first-and second modes are supported. The streaks considered here are driven either by the so-called optimal perturbations (Klebanoff-type) or the centrifugal instability (Görtler-type). When the streak amplitude is in an appropriate range, i.e., large enough to modulate the laminar boundary layer but low enough to not trigger secondary instability, both the first-and second modes can effectively be suppressed.
