Abstract

In recent years a variety of beamed energy deposition techniques have been investigated for flow control in high speed flows. Among these, microwave energy deposition has been demonstrated experimentally to achieve significant drag reduction for blunt body flows. A gas dynamic model for microwave energy deposition in air is developed using 23 species and 238 reactions. The model is applied to the simulation of microwave energy deposition in supersonic flow past a cylinder.
