Kurzfassung

The turbulent wake flow of generic rocket configurations is investigated experimentally and numerically at a freestream Mach number of 6.0 and a unit Reynolds number of 10 x 10^6. The flow condition is based on the trajectory of Ariane V at an altitude of 50 km, which is used as baseline to address the overarching tasks of wake flows in the hypersonic regime like fluid-structural coupling, reverse hot jets and base heating. Experiments using pressure transducers and high-speed schlieren measurement technique were conducted to gain insight into the local pressure fluctuations on the base and the oscillations of the recompression shock. This experimental configuration features a wedge-profiled strut orthogonally mounted to the main body. Additionally, the influence of cylindrical nozzle extensions attached to the base of the rocket is investigated, which is the link to the numerical investigations. Here, the axisymmetric model possesses a cylindrical sting support of the same diameter as the nozzle extensions. The sting support allows investigations of a undisturbed wake flow. A time-accurate zonal RANS/LES approach was applied to identify shocks, expansion waves, and the highly unsteady recompression region numerically. Subsequently, experimental and numerical results in the strut-averted region are opposed with regard to the wall pressure and recompression shock frequency spectra. For the compared configurations, experimental pressure spectra exhibit dominant Strouhal numbers at about S rD = 0.03 and 0.27 and the recompression shock oscillates at 0.2. In general, the numerical pressure and recompression shock fluctuations agree satisfactorily to the experimental results. The experiments with a blunt base reveal base-pressure spectra with dominant Strouhal numbers at 0.08 at the center position and 0.145, 0.21 − 0.22 and 0.31 − 0.33 at the outskirts of the base.
