Abstract : The report describes the results of an experimental study concerning the injection of a gaseous secondary jet into an unbounded supersonic flow field which was uniform outside of a turbulent boundary layer. The investigation was principally concerned with the definition of the proper scale length to be associated with turbulent two-dimensional jet-interaction flows. In support of this objective, results are presented for a Mach 4 test conducted using a flat-plate model containing a sonic secondary jet directed normal to the mainstream. Secondary jet strengths were varied from approximately 0 to 1000 for jet throat sizes of 0.005 inch, 0.020 inch and 0.030 inch. The jet interaction phenomenon was studied using detailed surface pressure distributions measured fore and aft of the secondary jet in conjunction with comprehensive shadowgraph coverage of the interaction flow field.
