Experiments have been performed on a 1:60 scale Ariane 5 launcher in the DNW HST wind tunnel by means of two-component particle image velocimetry (2C-PIV). Measurements are performed for Mach 0.5 and Mach 0.8. The investigation focuses on studying the flow-buffeting phenomenon in the base of an Ariane V rocket. In total four configurations are tested: reference configuration, skirt, scoop and reference configuration without struts. It has been found that the presence of the struts has a large effect on the flow field; the secondary flow caused by the struts decreases the separated region and increases the overall turbulence. The skirt has the effect that the shear layer separates later and therefore does not reattach on the nozzle. Also in the separated region a secondary recirculation region is formed. For the scoop configuration it was observed that a second wake was formed by the scoop element causing the overall shear layer to become thicker. Finally using POD analysis two dominant modes are identified that can be associated to the separation bubble and shear layer dynamics.
