Numerical simulations of reacting and non-reacting flows within a scramjet combustor configuration experimentally mapped at the University of Virginia’s Scramjet Combustion Facility (operating with Configuration “A”) are described in this paper. Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) and hybrid Large Eddy Simulation / ReynoldsAveraged Navier-Stokes (LES /(More)
The following research paper presents an up-to-date status of the testing of a Dual-Mode Scramjet (DMSJ) model which is experimentally operated at UVa’s Aerospace Research Laboratory. The optical technique Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (SPIV) is applied to the combustor of the DMSJ with a ramp fuel injector configuration. SPIV is utilized to(More)
The pterygopalatine fossa (PPF) represents a major pathway of spread of malignancy and infection from the head and neck into the skull base. The ability to precisely locate tumor and infection on CT and MR imaging studies is crucial for performing biopsies and planning treatment. Determining the exact margins of the PPF is problematic, because they are not(More)
Two experiments with isopods, Armadillidium vulgare, were reported. In Experiment I, two groups of five Ss each learned to run a T maze to escape light and heat. Both original learning (OL), and relearning (RL) the next day, were to a criterion 9/10 correct. Between OL and RL one group was immobilized (I), and the other group was given the opportunity for(More)
The following research paper presents an up to date status of the design and testing of a Dual-Mode Scramjet model which is experimentally operated at UVa’s Aerospace Research Laboratory. The demand for application of advanced optical measurement techniques has facilitated the complete re-design of all test sections. The details of the design, analysis, and(More)
