A closer look at shock wave boundary layer interaction
Europe’s aviation market accounts for more than 12 million jobs and some EUR 800 billion in European economic activity. The future of the industry hinges on continued improvements in efficiency (reductions in fuel consumption and increases in payload). But this requires more highly performing wings, control surfaces and turbomachinery blades where transonic flow is common. The mitigation of shock wave effects is the key aerodynamic challenge. What is more, increased aerodynamic forces can result in flow separation and reductions in engine and airframe performance. The EU-funded TEAMAero project will work to improve our understanding of shock wave boundary layer interaction physics. Its aim is to achieve effective flow control and ease the shock effects in relevant applications.
