Flow fields of Mach number 2.2 jet impinging on an inclined flat plate are experimentally investigated using the Pressure Sensitive Paints (PSP) and Schlieren flow visualization. The flow filed structure is mainly determined by two geometrical parameters (nozzle-plate distance and plate angle against the jet) and one flow parameter (pressure ratio). The results suggest that all the observed flow fields can actually be classified into three types of flow structure based on the three parameters above. As an extension of the authors’ earlier work, experiments are carried out for higher plate angles. The new results show the effectiveness and limitation of the classification that we proposed. To find out the flow structure, some of the flow fields are computationally simulated. Good agreement of the pressure distributions with the experiment validates the simulation. Although analysis so far is limited, the result reveals three dimensional complex flow structure that created pressure peaks over the plate surface.
