Pulsed jEt actuatoRs for SEparation control of tUrbulent flowS

Project description

Optimising technology that will ensure aircraft go with the flow – and vice versa

Flow separation is one of the most important problems in fluid mechanics and particularly aerospace design and control. When the flow of air 'detaches' from the surface of the aircraft, it results in reduced lift and increased pressure drag. Aside from increasing emissions because of greater fuel burn, it can affect the pilot's ability to control the aircraft in extreme cases. Pulsed jet actuators are a promising technology that can combat and control separation. The EU-funded PERSEUS project will combine numerical modelling and wind tunnel testing to determine the optimal parameters for improved jet pulse actuators.
