Final Report - VortexCell2050 (Fundamentals of actively controlled flows with trapped vortices)

Project ID: 12139
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final report 'Fundamentals of actively controlled flows with trapped vortices' (VortexCell2050) aimed at delivering a new technological platform combining two cutting-edge technologies, the trapped-vortex and the active flow control.

During its timeframe the project developed a tool for vortex cell design, collected a substantial amount of data on three-dimensional and actively controlled flows in vortex cells, and demonstrated the advantage of a thick airfoil with a properly designed vortex cell with active control over a thick airfoil without a vortex cell, thus opening a possibility of trying this technology in specific applications.
