Abstract

Measurement results on the mean velocity fields and fields of velocity pulsations in the supersonic flows obtained by means of the PIV measurement set "POLIS" are presented. Experiments were carried out in the supersonic blow-down and stationary wind tunnels at the Mach numbers of 4.85 and 6. The method of flow velocity estimate in the test section of the blow-down wind tunnel was grounded by direct measurements of stagnation pressure in the setup settling chamber. The size of tracer particles introduced into the supersonic flow by a mist generator was determined; data on the structure of pulsating velocity in a track of an oblique-cut gas-dynamic whistle were obtained under the conditions of self-oscillations.
