Passive separation control of a NACA0012 airfoil via a flexible flap
Physics of Fluids
The incorporation of nature-inspired techniques to control or reduce boundary layer separation, to bring about performance enhancements on air/water vehicles, has been an active research area for many years. In this paper a baseline NACA0012 airfoil is modified using a short flap on its upper surface at Reynolds number Re=1000. The impact of the flap configurationdescribed by length, attachment position, deployment angle and material properties, on the aerodynamic performance of thedoi:10.1063/1.5118933 fatcat:6m4iyq6jm5hs7nmjkvj2h6n4hm
