Title Energetic Flow Control.
Publication Date Jul 2011
Media Count 9p
Personal Author A. Nedungadi B. C. Cybyk
Abstract The generation of plasmadynamic discharges for near surface aerodynamic application holds the promise of providing rapid and flexible steering control for advanced high speed flight vehicles. Effective manipulation of a flow field using flow control technologies can lead to a maneuverability, payload and range, as well as lowered cost. The John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory is investigating the time dependent fluid dynamic interactions between collocated pulsed jets in order to demonstrate a potentially revolutionary system for high speed flow control that leverages spark jet technology.
