The effect of streamwise plasma vortex generators on the convective heat transfer of a turbulent boundary layer is experimentally investigated. A Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) plasma-actuator array is employed to promote pairs of counter-rotating, streamwise-aligned vortices embedded in a well-behaved turbulent boundary layer over a flat...

Following recent proof of swept wing laminar-to-turbulent boundary layer transition delay through base-flow modification using AC-DBD plasma actuators, an experimental investigation is performed to study the responsible physical mechanism. An experiment is conducted on a 45° swept wing in the anechoic wind tunnel at the Delft University of...

The research presented in this thesis focuses on boundary layer separation and, more specifically, on the related physical mechanisms, such as laminar to turbulent transition, with a vision towards effective separation control. The work is divided in three parts, each corresponding to a different separation scenario. The supporting data is...

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...

The contribution of sustainable Wind Energy (WE) to the global energy scenario has been steadily increasing over the past decades. In the process, Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT) became the most widespread and largest WE harvesting machines. Nevertheless, significant challenges still lie ahead of further expansion of HAWT, namely concerning...

An experimental investigation was conducted on the effective efficiency of a nanosecond Dielectric Barrier Discharge (ns-DBD) plasma actuator. Back-current shunt technique and infrared thermography measurements were carried out at the same time on an upside-down flat plate in a quiescent environment. The only investigated parameter was thickness...

The main driver of developments in the wind energy sector is not the absolute maximization of energy capture, but the reduction of the Cost of Energy (CoE). More and more research is carried out to investigate control of the air flow to reduce fatigue loads, structural requirements, and apply novel control strategies to ultimately reduce this...
