Abstract

The electrodynamic effect on the partially ionized flow around magnetized bodies was numerically investigated. In particular, the double-cone model was considered because, unlike a simple blunt-nosed model, it generates a complex flow including shock-shock and shock-boundary-layer interactions. Such flows are significantly affected by an applied magnetic field. The modification of the flowfield due to the applied magnetic field causes drag force enhancement and/or the mitigation of the aerodynamic heating. This is enhanced with increasing magnetic field intensity. Furthermore, local flow features such as the separation bubble and the local peak heating that appears near the kink point of the double-cone model are significantly affected. The size of the separation bubble increases with increasing magnetic field intensity and is clearly influenced by the configuration of the magnetic field. The local peak heating is reduced with increasing magnetic field intensity, but the effect of the magnetic field configuration is weak.
