The effect of rectangular synthetic jet to the flat plate boundary layer in low Reynolds number
Aeronautical engineering, Emirates Aviation College, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The objective of this study is investigating the impact of synthetic jet on the boundary layer and optimising the slot yaw angle (β). A rectangular synthetic jet with yaw angle relative to freestream is applied for flat plate boundary layer control. Various slot yaw angles are applied to find optimized amount and their impacts on the boundary layer are measured using a boundary layer probe with 2-D traversing system. The slot yaw angles are varied from 0°~90°. The assessment carried out using non-dimensional velocity profiles and lateral relative velocity (u/U) contours.
