Performance Evaluation of a highly robust Fluid Actuator for AFC (robustAFC)
Date du début: 1 déc. 2012, Date de fin: 31 mai 2014 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Active flow control systems are being researched, as they might allow to reduce the size, weight, and complexity of high-lift devices. Such active flow control systems, however, require effective, efficient, and reliable flow control actuators. TUB has contributed to developing these actuator technologies in JTI-SFWA projects DT-FA-AFC and FloCoSys. In the work proposed here, the next step is taken to further the TRL level of the devised fluidic actuators by redesigning them with respect to enhanced robustness and putting them to test in the numerous harsh environment situations the AFC system would encounter when implemented in practice.By combining the input from major industry partners in the field of aviation, such as Airbus and Dassault, the testing capabilities of INCAS, and the experience of TUB in developing and testing actuator, it is hoped to contribute to reaching TRL 6 for flow control actuator technology.
