Title: Shock instability in an inclined underexpanded impinging jet
Shadowgraph images captured at 1,000,000 frames per second show an underexpanded impinging jet of air with a nozzle pressure ratio (nozzle stagnation pressure divided by ambient pressure) of NPR=4.5, non-dimensional impingement distance of Z/D=2 (Where Z is the impingement distance and D is the nozzle diameter) and an impingement angle of 30 degrees. At this condition the jet is influenced by a an axially instability mode in which the upper portion of the shock is seen to deflect and oscillate.
