Abstract

Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes simulation (RANS) using the in-house CFD solver of Glasgow University is utilised to investigate the flow physics and the sensitivity to modelling assumptions of a multiple shock wave turbulent boundary layer interaction in a rectangular duct (, ). Such interactions often occur in high-speed intakes. Two-dimensional simulations were first performed to investigate the required grid resolution. Then the sensitivity of the solution to different turbulence models is considered. Based on the required grid resolution a series of three-dimensional simulations were performed to investigate the effect of spanwise confinement and turbulence models. Lastly, using the best approach based on the above investigations, results from two additional test cases were compared to their experiments, and conclusions are drawn as to the best way to simulate multiple shock wave turbulent boundary layer interactions.
