Active Flow control on Tilt Rotor lifting surfaces


The aim of the Topic is to investigate the application of pulsed air blowing devices with Zero Net Mass Flux (ZNMF) to control the vortical flow on the relevant lifting non-rotating surfaces (empennages, wing) on a Tilt Rotor configuration. For this application the objective is to determine the optimal flow control actuation parameters and the optimal jet positioning aimed to maximize the lifting surfaces efficiencies. The chosen configuration for this investigation is the NGCTR-TD. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
