The present work is an experimental investigation of stationary crossflow (CF) instability-induced transition of the boundary layer over a 45°swept wing, under varying free-stream turbulence, surface roughness, angle of attack and Reynolds number. Key topological features of the transition front, such as the mean transition location and the...

The plasma synthetic jet actuator (PSJA), also named as sparkjet actuator, is a special type of zero-net mass flux actuator, driven thermodynamically by pulsed arc/spark discharge. Compared to widely investigated mechanical synthetic jet actuators driven by vibrating diaphragms or oscillating pistons, PSJAs exhibit the unique capability of...

Transition and flow development in a separation bubble formed on an airfoil are studied experimentally. The effects of tonal and broadband acoustic excitation are considered since such acoustic emissions commonly result from airfoil self-noise and can influence flow development via a feedback loop. This interdependence is decoupled, and the...

A combined experimental and numerical approach to the analysis of the secondary stability of realistic swept-wing boundary layers is presented. Global linear stability theory is applied to experimentally measured base flows. These base flows are three-dimensional laminar boundary layers subject to spanwise distortion due to the presence of...

In this study, experiments are performed towards the identification and measurement of unsteady modes occurring in a transitional swept wing boundary layer. These modes are generated by the interaction between the primary stationary and travelling cross-flow instabilities or by secondary instability mechanisms of the stationary cross-flow...

This work investigates the three-dimensional, spatio-Temporal flow development in the aft portion of a laminar separation bubble. The bubble is forming on a flat plate geometry, subjected to an adverse pressure gradient, featuring maximum reverse flow of approximately 2Â % of the local free-stream velocity. Time-resolved velocity measurements...

Control of laminar-to-turbulent transition on a swept-wing is achieved by base-flow modification in an experimental framework, up to a chord Reynolds number of 2.5 million. This technique is based on the control strategy used in the numerical simulation by Dörr & Kloker (J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys., vol. 48, 2015b, 285205). A spanwise uniform...

An experimental investigation was carried out to examine the effect of two-dimensional Forward Facing Steps surface irregularities, on the laminar-to-turbulent boundary-layer transition on a 45° swept-wing. For the clean reference case, the numerical boundary-layer flow is calculated from pressure measurements, and a thorough linear stability...

In the current study, selective forcing of cross-flow instability modes evolving on a swept wing at is achieved by means of spanwise-modulated plasma actuators, positioned near the leading edge. In the perspective of laminar flow control, the followed methodology holds on the discrete roughness elements/upstream flow deformation (DRE/UFD)...

The performance of a two–electrode plasma synthetic jet actuator (PSJA) is investigated for a wide range of dimensionless actuation frequencies (f*) using high-speed phase-locked Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV) measurements. The jet-induced velocity fields in the axisymmetric plane are measured during both...

A new framework is presented for estimation and control of instabilities in wall-bounded shear flows described by the linearised Navier-Stokes equations. The control design considers the use of localised actuators/sensors to account for convective instabilities in an optimal control framework. External sources of disturbances are assumed to...

This paper experimentally investigates the interaction between a plasma synthetic jet (PSJ) and a subsonic turbulent boundary layer (TBL) using a hotwire anemometer and phase-locked particle imaging velocimetry. The PSJ is interacting with a fully developed turbulent boundary layer developing on the flat wall of a square wind tunnel section...
