Quinn MK, Kontis K - Sensors (Basel) (2013)

Bottom Line: Illumination comes from two high-intensity broadband Xenon arc light sources with short-pass filters.The sample is imaged at 100 kHz using a Vision Research Phantom V710 in conjunction with a pair of long and short pass filters, creating a band.The PSP results are compared with numerical simulations of the flow using the commercial CFD package Fluent as part of ANSYS 13 for two Mach numbers.

ABSTRACT
Measurements of the global pressure field created by shock wave diffraction have been captured optically using a porous pressure-sensitive paint. The pressure field created by a diffracting shock wave shows large increases and decreases in pressure and can be reasonably accurately captured using CFD. The substrate, a thin-layer chromatography (TLC) plate, has been dipped in a luminophore solution. TLC plates are readily available and easy to prepare. Illumination comes from two high-intensity broadband Xenon arc light sources with short-pass filters. The sample is imaged at 100 kHz using a Vision Research Phantom V710 in conjunction with a pair of long and short pass filters, creating a band. The PSP results are compared with numerical simulations of the flow using the commercial CFD package Fluent as part of ANSYS 13 for two Mach numbers.

Mentions: The numerical pressure profile is presented in Figure 11. The numerical results qualitatively agree with the PSP measurements; however, there are some discrepancies. The simulated pressure behind the incident shock is slightly higher than the PSP measurements, albeit within experimental error. This is likely to be due to the response time of the PSP layer rather than an over-prediction by the simulation.
