Glow discharge at atmospheric pressure using a dielectric barrier discharge can induce fluid flow and operate as an actuator for flow control. In this paper, we simulate the physics of a two-dimensional asymmetric actuator operating in helium gas using a high-fidelity first-principles-based numerical modeling approach to help improve our understanding of the physical mechanisms associated with such actuators. Fundamentally, there are two processes in the two half-cycles of the actuatordoi:10.2514/6.2007-4531 fatcat:3gk2ex2tyng5jantz35cavbrki
