STAtic and DYnamic piezo-driven streamWIse vortex generators for active flow COntrol

Objective

STA-DY-WI-CO is Marie Curie IAPP transfer of knowledge programme involving two partners, Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery of the Polish Academy of Sciences and LMS International in Belgium. This four year exchange programme for the best quality early stage and experienced researchers from industry and academia will combine expertise from fluid dynamics, Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS), experimental techniques and numerical modelling of fluid-structure coupled physical phenomena. Partners plan to recruit experienced researchers at respective locations for continuous periods of twelve months. Proposed research project of mutual interest to partners will address key questions in the complex multi physics phenomena research related to active flow control with the application of the novel piezoelectric materials. In energy consuming applications like aircraft operation active flow control is an effective method of substantial fuel consumption reduction and thus restricting the CO2 emission. In energy generation applications like wind turbines the active flow control on blades significantly increases the energy production and reduces blade loads. Combination of the two cutting-edge technologies, the MEMS and the active flow control will provide an excellent training and career development path for researchers who wish to work on analysis of the combined effects of multiple physical phenomena in environment friendly modern technologies. Proposed project will both foster existing long term collaboration between partners and create new collaborations through recruited researchers. The project outcomes will both serve the designers of the next-generation aircrafts and wind turbine blades and at the same time strengthen the human potential in R&D in Europe.
