Experimental Study of Co-Flow Jet Airfoil Performance Enhancement Using Discrete Jets

This paper demonstrates a new performance enhancement methodology for Co-Flow Jet (CFJ) airfoils using discrete injection jets. This research is motivated by the hypothesis that a discrete CFJ (DCFJ) airfoil will generate both streamwise and spanwise vortex structures to achieve more effective turbulent mixing than an open slot CFJ airfoil.
