An Overview of Recent DLR Contributions on Active Flow-Separation Control Studies for High-Lift Configurations

V. Ciobaca & J. Wild
This is an overview of flow control experiments and simulations for flow separation control on high-lift configurations performed over the last seven years at the German Aerospace Center within national and European projects. Emphasis is placed on the low speed atmospheric and cryogenic experimental setups using the DLR F15 high-lift airfoil and on the numerical verification and validation of the Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) solver TAU for active flow control (AFC) simulations. The wind...
