A tapered micro-plow, or a series of tapered micro-plows, are submerged in a boundary layer just upstream of a reflection point of an oblique shock. Each micro-plow develops a beneficial pair of vortices which redistribute high energy flow within the boundary layer such that flow separation is prevented or delayed. The beneficial vortex pairs rotate about an axis that is parallel to the flow of fluid, and together rotate such that they induce a velocity on one another which tends to hold them near the surface and delay vortex lift-off.
1. An apparatus for reducing shock-induced separation, the apparatus comprising: a micro-plow, the micro-plow having a wedge shape in topview and a centerline, the centerline being parallel to a direction of fluid flow over the micro-plow, the micro-plow comprising:a nose segment having a nose and an apex, the apex located aft of the nose, the vertical height of the micro-plow increasing from the nose to the apex, and the vertical height of the micro-plow decreasing from the apex to an aft point, the nose comprising a pair of nose sidewalls located on th...
