Thermal Characterization of a DBD Plasma Actuator: Dielectric Temperature Measurements Using Infrared Thermography
40th Fluid Dynamics Conference and Exhibit
Active flow control by plasma actuators is currently under investigation in order to improve the aerodynamic performance of vehicles. One of these actuators consists in using a surface dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) by creating a non-thermal plasma at the dielectric surface. The plasma discharge induces a low-velocity airflow, the so-called "ionic wind", which can be used to modify external flows. In this study, we focus on the description of the thermal effect of a DBD actuator in order todoi:10.2514/6.2010-5102 fatcat:ooncw3iy7fbvhad4rj7znce63q
