The influence of periodic excitation from synthetic jet actuators, SJA, on boundary layer separation and reattachment over a NACA 0025 airfoil at a low Reynolds number is studied. All experiments were performed in a low-turbulence recirculating wind tunnel at a Reynolds number of 100,000 and angle of attack of α = 5◦. Mounted below the surface of the airfoil, the SJA consists of four (32.77mm diameter) piezoelectric ceramic diaphragms positioned in a single row. Initial flow visualization and… CONTINUE READING
