Final Report - PLASMAERO (Useful plasma for aerodynamic control)

Project ID: 234201
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT


This is the final report for the PLASMAERO project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). PLASMAERO sought to demonstrate how surface and arc discharge plasma actuators can be used to influence and control aircraft flows.

The report presents the context, the consortium and the objectives of the project. It also describes the results of the most promising plasmas actuators to control or improve the flow of the chosen aerodynamic configurations, subsonic, transonic and in atmospheric conditions and supplies the assessment of the project. Furthermore, it synthesises all the numerical and experimental works performed in the PLASMAERO project and analyses the results of the plasmas actuators operation and their effect on flow control. Finally, it provides the main recommendations for future works on plasmas actuators conception and on protocol for flow control by plasmas.
