MHD hypersonic flow control for aerospace applications
16th AIAA/DLR/DGLR International Space Planes and Hypersonic Systems and Technologies Conference
The heat barrier, resulting from shock waves, is the main problem to overcome in hypersonic flight. Shock waves start from the intersection of Mach waves, but it is shown that a suitable electromagnetic force field can modify the pattern. Computational and experimental studies involving magnetohydrodynamics are presented, allowing for shock wave cancellation and active aerodynamic control of an ionized flow through Lorentz force action. Further solutions are also considered for advanceddoi:10.2514/6.2009-7348 fatcat:tlw7pi5bmbebrhgf2qojwzhxte
