An experimental investigation is performed on the operation of dielectric barrier discharge plasma actuators used as manipulators of secondary and unsteady flow structures such as boundary layer instabilities or shedding vortices. The actuators are tested mainly in pulse mode. High sample rate hot-wire measurements of the induced velocity field...

A novel technique is proposed and investigated for the estimation of the body force field resulting from the operation of a dielectric barrier discharge plasma actuator. The technique relies on the measurement of the spatio-temporal evolution of the induced velocity field using high-speed particle image velocimetry (PIV). The technique has the...

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...

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...

A correction to the eN method for transition prediction, that at present is in use at Delft University, is developed and tested. The existing method is based on solutions of the Falkner-Skan similar boundary layer equation without suction or blowing. The correction is based on additional solutions of this equation with suction and blowing. For...

The forcing behavior of a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) actuator is investigated experimentally using a time-resolved particle image velocimetry (PIV) system in conjunction with a phase shifting technique. The spatio-temporal evolution of the induced flowfield is accurately captured within one high voltage (HV) cycle allowing the...

Swirl recovery vanes (SRVs) are a set of stationary vanes located downstream from a propeller, which may recover some of the residual swirl from the propeller, hoping for an improvement in both thrust and efficiency. The SRV concept design for a scaled version representing the Fokker 29 propeller is performed in this paper, which may give rise...

In this work the flow visualization of the transition pattern occurring on a swept wing in a subsonic flow is presented. This is done by means of fluorescent oil flow technique and boundary layer hot-wire scans. The experiment was performed at Reynolds number of 2:15 . 106 and at angle of attack of -3º. At these conditions, three different flows...

An experimental study aimed at the characterization of energy deposition of nanosecond Dielectric Barrier Discharge (ns-DBD) plasma actuators was carried out. Special attention was given on the effect of the thickness and material used for dielectric barrier. The selected materials for this study were polyimide film (Kapton), polyamide based...

The CleanEra project was initiated with the goal of developing revolutionary ideas for civil aviation. These ideas were to offer solutions which would limit and reduce some of the negative aspects of aviation, namely: emissions and the use of resources. This book presents you with the highlights of this journey in search of new technologies for...

A new methodology is presented for model reduction of linear parabolic partial differential equations (PDEs) on general geometries using multivariate splines on triangulations. State-space descriptions are derived that can be used for control design. This method uses Galerkin projection with B-splines to derive a finite set of ordinary...

A simplified model is established to estimate the jet exit density variation of a plasma synthetic jet actuator (PSJA) driven by a capacitive arc discharge. This model, in conjunction with phase-locked planar particle imaging velocimetry (PIV) measurements, enables the calculation of jet mechanical energy for different operating conditions....

An experimental characterisation study of a large-volume three-electrode plasma synthetic jet actuator (PSJA) is presented. A sequential discharge power supply system is used to activate the PSJA. Phase-locked planar particle image velocimetry (PIV) and time-resolved Schlieren imaging are used to characterise the evolution of the induced flow...

This work examines the effect of local active flow control on stability and transition in a laminar separation bubble. Experiments are performed in a wind tunnel facility on a NACA 0012 airfoil at a chord Reynolds number of 130 000 and an angle of attack of 2 degrees. Controlled disturbances are introduced upstream of a laminar separation...
