  9. Neural-Network-Based Adaptive Flow Control for Maneuvering Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Conventional flow control methods employ actuation frequencies that are the same order as the characteristic frequency of the flow. Georgia Tech has demonstrated novel high-frequency synthetic jet actuation to modify the apparent aerodynamic shape of aerosurfaces and achieve quasi-steady flow reattachment over an otherwise separated airfoil. Practical application of this technology in dynamic ma ...
