Plasma flow control: fundamentals, modeling and applications

VKI LS 2011-02, hardcover, 1 volume, ISBN-13 978-2-87516-014-0

Advances in aero-thermodynamics, aero-elasticity and aero-acoustics largely depend on the understanding and ability to control the flow structures. This lecture series reviews the implementation and interaction mechanisms related to plasma flow control. Phenomenological models to be used in conjunction with CFD codes are explained, from simple algebraic equations to complex set of partial difference equations. The governing equations of glow discharges in supersonic and hypersonic flows are analyzed to reveal the time scales. Kinetic models in nonequilibrium plasma are discussed as well as mechanisms of shear layer instability, optimal location and frequency of actuation.

Applications of surface and arc plasmas for civil aircraft are discussed (wing separations, wing tip vortex, boundary layer delay and fixing, buffeting, jet exhaust noise ...). The use of Dielectric Barrier Discharge in flow control are presented over a range of Mach numbers from 0.1 to 3.5. The physics of the flow separation control on airfoils with the nanosecond plasma discharge are discussed and demonstrated experimentally up to Mach number 0.75. Successful experiences of plasma-induced generation of shock waves, and artificial flow separation are demonstrated. Finally, the gasdynamic and thermochemical processes of the plasmoid generation with micro-wave and laser discharge are described.
