Aeroelastic and aerothermoelastic interactions are likely to be significant in a supersonic or hypersonic compression ramp. The work presented here is a study of aeroelastic interactions of turbulent flow over a flexible compression ramp. RANS and URANS fluid computations tightly coupled with a finite element model of the flexible ramp are presented here to understand aeroelastic effects on shock structure and shock motion. Flow separation and reattachment together with shock structure through numerical shadowgraph are analyzed and presented. In the static aeroelastic case, the shock structure shows appreciable change with variation in stiffness, although the pressure ratio over the ramp does not change appreciably. Aeroelastic flutter instability does not occur for the parameters simulated; however, the time-variation in the pressure ratio as well as the shock structure is significant. These studies point to the importance of aeroelastic considerations in designing supersonic and hypersonic intakes as the shock structure is likely to change and interact with the intake cowl.
