A numerical investigation on the use of plasma actuators for transition control is presented. The numerical framework involves the solution of the full unsteady 2D incompressible Navier Stokes equations using a finite volume formulation. The set of equations is formulated by solving for the perturbations in the flow while a mean laminar boundary...

An experimental investigation on thrust and body force of Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) /plasma actuators aimed at low power flow control applications is presented. A parametric study on thrust is conducted for a wide range of geometrical configurations as well as several electrical operational conditions. Direct measurements of the induced...

The mechanical power production and electrical power consumption of the dielectric barrier discharge plasma actuator is investigated for different operating conditions. The ratio of these two values delivers the mechanical efficiency of the actuator as a flow acceleration device. The general trend is that higher carrier frequencies and voltages...
