Abstract

Computations are performed to understand the physics of interaction of a synthetic jet with a turbulent boundary layer. Two cases are studied, corresponding to the experiments of Glezer andHonohan at Georgia Tech. In one case, the discrete vortices of the synthetic jet scale with the thickness of the turbulent boundary layer, while in another they only scale with the inner viscous sublayer. A 2-D Reynolds-Averaged Navier- Stokes solver INS2D is employed in the computations. The cavity of the synthetic jet is included in the simulations. The results of computations are compared with the experiments; good agreement is obtained.
