Two different control devices are introduced to modify the boundary layer thickness by plasma induced velocity in the low speed region. These horseshoe and serpentine shaped actuators are surface compliant and have a significant three-dimensional influence on neighbouring flows. A numerical investigation of the quiescent and flow condition demonstrates active electrodynamic actuation of fluid in all three principal (streamwise, crosswise and surface normal) directions altering the boundary… Expand
