In this paper the effect of the state of the separating high-speed boundary layer on the spatially developing mixing layer is analysed through Large Eddy Simulation. The initially-laminar mixing layer has an inflow condition obtained from simple Blasius profiles, whilst the initially-turbulent flow obtains a turbulent high-speed side boundary layer from a recycling and rescaling method. The recycling and rescaling method produces reasonable turbulent statistics, given the uncertainty in the… CONTINUE READING
