Abstract

The use of periodic excitation to enhance airfoil performance at low Reynolds numbers was demonstrated. For this purpose, experiments were performed in Tel Aviv University's Meadow-Knapp closed-wind-tunnel. It was found that the effectiveness of the method depends on the effectiveness and efficiency of actuators to supply prescribed excitation.
