We investigate a passive flow-control technique for the interaction of an oblique shock generated by an 8.8∞ wedge with a turbulent boundary layer at a free-stream Mach number of M = 2.3 by means of large-eddy simulation. The control configuration studied combines suction applied inside the separation zone and injection acting upstream of the interaction region through a passive-channel concept. We present results for three configurations, which differ in the suction location within the recirculation zone while the injection position is kept constant. Besides the analysis of mean flow properties, the main focus lies on the turbulence evolution within the interaction region and the effect of the control devices on the low-frequency dynamics of the reflected shock movement.
