In this study, the effects of Co-Flow jet and injection temperature on the enhancement of airfoil performance in the compressible flow are investigated numerically. Co-Flow jet is a method of increasing lift to drag ratio and varying the Stall Degree which works via injecting the air from the edge of airfoil and suction from the tail. The much number of studied flow changes from 0.4 to 0.6. Clark-Y airfoil has been chosen for this study because of its application in compressible flow, it is the base airfoil for development of new airfoils. A validation is performed for Clark-Y airfoil by comparing the present numerical result and available experimental data in the literature. Results indicate that the enhancement induced by the Co-Flow jet on the compressible flow is less than one in the incompressible flow. The drag and lift coefficients reduces and increases by increasing the jet momentum coefficient, respectively. Using the Co-Flow Jet increase the stall degree. The maximum of lift decrement and drag increment occurs around the stall degree. Increasing the temperature increases lift coefficient slightly where it seems to be better choice in comparison with increment of Jet momentum coefficient due to ease of operation.
