Evidence of non-thermal plasma effect for supersonic drag reduction

Abstract

The plasma effect on shock wave was experimentally explored. A 30°C half-angle truncated cone was used as the model with a protruding central-electrode isolated from the body for electric discharges. It was found that the introduced plasma spike has drastically modified the original complicated shock structure to a simple one manifesting a single sonic shock. Furthermore, the plasma effect on shock structure lasted much longer than the discharge period.
