Towards Effective Flow Control
and Mitigation of Shock Effects
In Aeronautical Applications

About

The aviation industry is entering an era of new technologies and requires high-performance wings, control surfaces, intakes and turbo machinery blades, where transgenic flow is common and the formation of shock waves is the key aerodynamic challenge.

The main objective of TEAMAero is to develop new scientific knowledge, capabilities and technologies for the aeronautics industry. The researchers recruited in TEAMAero will investigate emerging technologies through laboratory experiments, theoretical modeling and numerical simulations addressing aspects of shock wave boundary layer interaction (SBLI) and flow control methods. 

OBJECTIVES

1

to improve our fundamental understanding of the physics of Shock Wave Boundary Layer Interaction, including three-dimensionality and unsteadiness

2

to identify the flow domains best suited to flow-control device installation

3

to develop flow-control schemes using wall transpiration (suction/blowing), vortex generators and surface treatments to delay the onset of separation

4

to develop novel numerical methods for predicting the effects of  Shock Wave Boundary Layer Interaction
