Compact zero-mass pulsatile jet actuators are proposed for low speed maneuvering and station keeping of small underwater vehicles. The flow field of such jets are initially dominated by vortex ring formation. Prototypes of such actuators are built and tested. The current actuator design has a mechanical plunger system to generate pulsatile jets, whose oscillation frequency is varied between zero and 40 Hz. This actuator is designed so that the cavity dimensions, exit diameter, actuation… CONTINUE READING
