    Abstract

    A numerical investigation of the thermal and acoustic effects in high-speed compressible flows is presented. Two case studies are considered: i) transition to turbulence in supersonic flows over a flat plate, and ii) supersonic shock wave turbulent boundary layer interaction (SWTBLI) over a compression ramp. Implicit Large Eddy Simulations (iLES) are performed using the second and fifth order Monotone-Upstream Central Scheme for Conservation Laws (MUSCL) and the ninth order Weighted Essentially Non-Oscillatory (WENO) schemes. The aim of this study is twofold: i) to examine the acoustic and thermal effects associated with transitional and turbulent boundary layers, particularly in the near wall region; ii) to investigate the effects of numerical accuracy on acoustic and thermal loading. The results are compared with theoretical models, Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) and experiments.
