Experimental Investigation Of Aerodynamic Interference Heating Due To Protuberances On Flat Plates And Cones Facing Hypersonic Flows
With the age of hypersonic flight imminent just beyond the horizon, researchers are working hard at designing work-arounds for all the major problems as well as the minor quirks associated with it. One such issue, seemingly ...
Modeling And Computation Of Turbulent Nonreacting And Reacting Sprays
Numerical modeling of several turbulent nonreacting and reacting spray jets is carried out using a fully stochastic separated flow (FSSF) approach. As is widely used, the carrier-phase is considered in an Eulerian framework, ...
Structure Of Sink Flow Boundary Layers
The work reported in this thesis is an experimental and theoretical investigation of the so-called sink flow boundary layers. These are two-dimensional (in the mean), favourable-pressure-gradient (FPG) boundary layer flows ...
Experimental And Computational Investigations Of Underexpanded Jets From Elliptical Sonic Nozzles
(Indian Institute of Science, 2005-10-25)
Three dimensional nozzles and jet flows have attracted the attention of many researchers due to their potential application to many practical devices. Rectangular nozzles are considered for short/vertical take off and ...
Optimal Trajectory Planning for Fixed-Wing Miniature Air Vehicles
Applications such as urban surveillance, search and rescue, agricultural applications, military applications, etc., require miniature air vehicles (MAVs) to fly for a long time. But they have restricted flight duration due ...
A Methodology To Recover Unstable Aircraft From Post Stall Regimes: Design And Analysis
(Indian Institute of Science, 2006-07-26)
This thesis deals with high angle of attack behaviour of a generic delta wing model aircraft. A high angle of attack wind tunnel database has been generated for this aircraft and based upon the bifurcation analysis of the ...
