Flow Control

Open-loop and closed-loop control of separated flows using visual sensors (with A. Giannopoulos, E. Varon, N. Gautier)

Closed-loop control of the separated flow downstream a Backward-Facing Step (BFS) using a pulsed slotted-jet as the actuator and real-time PIV measurement as input :


Recirculation bubble downstream a BFS: natural uncontrolled flow (grey area) together with the controlled flow (black area).
