Abstract : The turbulent mixing region of a two-dimensional, supersonic, air-air ejector system was experimentally investigated utilizing an interferometer. Density distributions for the two-stream mixing region within the ejector duct were established for 6 different test configurations. Similarity of the density distributions was indicated for mixing region cross sections as close as one nozzleexit hydraulic diameter from the nozzle. Density profiles at successive downstream duct locations were plotted to show the spread of the mixing region. The effect of normal and oblique shocks on the rate of spread of the mixing region was found to be small. In addition, ejector performance data and techniques for spark lamp photography are presented. It is concluded that the interferometer could be effectively utilized to help determine the transport coefficients of ejector system turbulent mixing processes. (Author)
