Numerical Simulation of Supersonic Jet Impingement on Inclined Plate
Supersonic jet impinging on an inclined plate is explored numerically by solving Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations using a commercial solver. The numerical uncertainty is quantified by grid convergence index parameter analysis. Simulations capture crisply all the essential features of the flow field including jet boundary, jet shock, upper tail shock, front and behind plate shocks. Good agreement between computational and experimental results for different plate angles forms the basis of further analysis. Four different two equations turbulence models predict similar jet structures. Effect of plate angles, pressure ratio, nozzle-plate distance on impinged jet structures are evaluated from numerical results. It has been observed that with increase in the plate angle, the maximum pressure zone in the plate changed from crescent shape to round shape. Well resolved RANS simulations are capable of capturing finer details of supersonic impinging jets on inclined plate.
