Sonic jet into supersonic crossflow


A jet in crossflow refers to a jet of fluid exiting a nozzle/orifice to interact with fluid that is flowing across it. We are using direct numerical and large-eddy simulation to study such flows in both incompressible and supersonic regimes. Such flows are relevant to gas turbine and scramjet engine combustors. Another practical application is in vehicle steering where supersonic jets interact with subsonic crossflowing air.
