Description
  • Abstract: Flow separation is a constant problem in airfoil applications ranging from airplane wings to turbine blades. Active solutions such as pulsed blowing require more energy and complexity while passive solutions such as vortex generators often come at a cost of increased drag. Bird wings have a unique solution to the problem that involves the covert feathers on the top of their wings. Th... read more
