Abstract

The results of numerical calculations of the stability of axisymmetric swirled flows in a viscous vortex embedded in a supersonic cocurrent stream with a constant circulation of the azimuthal velocity component are presented. The stability characteristics of the swirled three-dimensional viscous flow in the streamwise vortex are determined on the basis of the linearized system of Navier-Stokes equations for a viscous heat-conducting gas under the assumption that the basic undisturbed flow is locally plane-parallel. The disturbed flow stability is studied in the temporal formulation with respect to both symmetric and asymmetric three-dimensional waves traveling along the vortex axis and corresponding to both positive and negative values of the azimuthal wavenumber. It is shown that at external inviscid flow Mach numbers M = 2 and 3 thermal energy supply in a small region near the vortex axis leads to considerable restructuring of the basic undisturbed flow in the vicinity of the vortex core, the growth of the adverse pressure gradient along the vortex axis, and a significant change in the small perturbation stability and behavior.
