Study on influence of forced vibration of cooling channel on flow and heat transfer of hydrocarbon fuel at supercritical pressure

ABSTRACT
The cooling channel of a scramjet is the fundamental structure of the active thermal protection for an engine. Till now, studies have focused mainly on the steady-state flow and heat transfer process in the cooling channel. However, the vibration intensity of an engine increases sharply as the flight speed increases, because of which, the flow and heat exchange mechanisms based on the cooling channel under stable conditions cannot be applied under vibration. In this study, experimental methods are used to study the characteristics of the forced vibration of a cooling channel on the flow and heat transfer of hydrocarbon fuel at supercritical pressure. In addition, the influences of different vibration frequencies and vibration amplitudes on the flow and heat transfer are analyzed. The research results show that at supercritical pressure, when the fuel temperature is below the critical temperature and the inner wall temperature is above the critical temperature, external vibrations would enhance the heat transfer characteristics of the cooling channel. However, when the pressure and temperature are unstable, the forced vibration of the cooling channel would suppress the instability of temperature and pressure while strengthening the heat exchange.
