Abstract

We analyze time-resolved schlieren images of the near-field of a 3-stream supersonic jet. The primary jet operates in the vicinity of Ma = 1.6, and the images are collected at the rate of 50 to 400 kfps. We analyze transverse-axial images by constructing time series from more than 400 points selected for their possible significance, based on a qualitative analysis of the schlieren images. The points are grouped along the various shear layers and in the near-field outside the jet. We examine in turn the power spectra and cross-correlations between points. Overall qualitative and quantitative trends in both spectra and correlation are noted, revealing a strong dependence of both on transverse and axial location in the flow field. Defining features in the spectra give insight into the frequency bands which will be more closely analyzed in future phases of this study. The results from this preliminary study point to the validity of using time-resolved schlieren imaging as a non-intrusive experimental method to generate time series, to which a range of analysis methods is applicable.
