Abstract

It will be shown how plasma actuator can generate wall-jet-like flow or train of periodical vortices depending on the generator setting. For generation the high-frequency high-voltage AC is used. Low-frequency modulation of the supply voltage is required to generate vortices. Data acquisition will be performed using time-resolved PIV technique. Phase-averaging will be studied from two different perspectives. Firstly, sampling of phases will be ensured using trigger that is contained in the PIV software and, secondly, phase-averaged flow will be computed from two main modes of POD analysis. The generated flow patterns are to be applied for control of a boundary layer. (© 2012 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
