Develop and test Power Efficient Actuation Concepts for Separation Flow Control at large aerodynamic areas requiring very low actuation energy

The objective is to develop and realize advanced actuation concepts for flow separation control which are more power efficient compared to state of the art pulsed jet actuators, reducing considerable the net mass flow (by factor 3-5). After being developed and designed the actuators shall be manufactured, tested and fully characterized in a small scale wind tunnel test, followed by a representative scale wind tunnel test. Numerical simulations of the flow shall support the design phase of the actuators and shall be applied for a comprehensive understanding of the occurring flow phenomena, paving the way for integration at representative aircraft scale. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
