Overview

Dr Timothy McIntyre's research interests are in the fields of: Laser Diagnostics (Holographic Interferometry, Laser Induced Fluorescence, LEI Velocimetry, Schlieren/Shadowgraph, Spectroscopic Methods, Non-linear Methods) and Hypersonic Flow (Super-orbital flow, Scramjets, Facility Development, Non-equlibrium flow, Radiation)

He received his PhD from the Australian National University in 1989. His chief research projects are in the areas of:

Development of advanced laser diagnostics for studying high enthalpy flows generated in University of Queensland’s superorbital expansion tubes.Use of super-orbital expansion tubes for experimental study of high enthalpy reacting flows relevant to space vehicle entry into planetary atmospheres.The study of supersonic combusting flows in a shock tunnel.

Research Interests

  • Development of advanced optical diagnostics for high enthalpy flows in superorbital expansion tubes.
    We develop and apply optical imaging and measurement techniques to characterise high temperature hypersonic flow. This is a particularly challenging and unique environment in which to make such measurements due to its short duration (~ 50 ms), high temperature (~10,000 K) and low density. We make use of spectroscopic, interferometric and fluorescence approaches in order to obtain measurements that can be develop our understanding of these flows and for use in comparing with advanced numerical simulations.
  • Use of super-orbital expansion tubes for the experimental study of high enthalpy reacting flows
    Vehicles entering a planetary atmospheres at hypersonic speeds generate gas flows that are characterised by high temperatures leading to chemical and thermal non-equilibrium. Ground-based facilities allow us to generate and study such flows. We conduct tests over various shaped bodies in test gases including air, carbon-dioxide and hydrogen/neon. Along with flow visualisation we conduct measurements to determine heating of the surface of the vehicle due to convective and radiative processes.
  • Laser based imaging and measurement of supersonic combusting flows in a shock tunnel.
    Supersonic combustion ramjet engines offer the ability of low cost delivery of payloads to space. In the longer term they may also lead to hypersonic flight lowering travel times around the globe. However the mixing and combustion processes in such engines are still not well understood. We use optical techniques, including laser induced fluorescence, to observe and measure the flow species in order to develop our understanding and to ultimately improve the engine design.

Possible Research Projects

Note for students: The possible research projects listed on this page may not be comprehensive or up to date. Always feel free to contact the staff for more information, and also with your own research ideas.

  • Opportunities exist for developing and applying advanced optical techniques in the fields of spectroscopy, interferometry and fluorescence. Students with a strong background and interest in the application of these or related optical or laser-based techniques to hypersonic flow should contact me for details of specific projects.
