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...

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,...

Nanosecond dielectric barrier discharge (NS-DBD) plasma actuators is relatively
new means of flow control. It has several advantages compared to more conventional
means of flow control, such as small size, low weight, fast response time
and controllability. It has been demonstrated to be able to promote transition of
boundary...

An experimental investigation about nanosecond Dielectric Barrier Discharge (ns-DBD) plasma actuator is presented in this thesis. This work aimed to answer fundamental questions on the actuation mechanism of this device. In order to do so, parametric studies in a quiescent air as well as laminar bounded of free shear layers were performed....

A method to quantify the efficiency of the first two operational stages of a nanosecond dielectric barrier discharge (ns-DBD) plasma actuator is proposed. The method is based on the independent measurements of the energy of electrical pulses and the useful part of the energy which heats up the gas in the discharge region. Energy input is...

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...

This paper describes the experimental investigation of the properties of Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) actuators aimed at transition delay techniques. A wide range of geometrical configurations are tested as well as several electrical operational conditions. For the majority of the measurements statistical data for the induced flow field...
