Mode-Transition

Summary: 

The transition between ramjet and scramjet operation modes in a dual-mode scramjet is not fully understood. The recent flight test of the HIFiRE 2 provided the opportunity to experimentally study this event. In order to supplement this study, computations were performed to understand the influence of inlet distortion, SBLI, and corner separation during the mode-transition event.
