Malaysian Researchers use Manchester’s Hypersonic Wind Tunnel to evaluate hybrid flow control devices that reduce shockwave-induced flow separation.

Funded by STFC-Malaysia Newton fund, a team of researchers from the Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia undertook experiments in the hypersonic wind tunnel at The University of Manchester for three weeks in November 2021. The aim of the project is to investigate shockwave control using hybrid micro vortex generators and transverse jets. The experimental data will be used by STFC for validating their CFD codes.
