5 cm), although these definitions vary somewhat. , Carmichael, 1981). 9 cm chord, 17% thick airfoil at Reynolds numbers of 50,000 and 30,000, where zero-mass-flux perturbations were produced from a slot at 2% chord (Greenblatt and Wygnanski, 2001). On small-scale vehicles, internal volume will limit the size of actuators. , 2004). , 2009). For low MAV Reynolds numbers (Re Ϸ 20,000), modulation increased Cl,max by more than a factor of 2 on an Eppler E338 airfoil, and typical low-Re hysteresis was eliminated.

Chapter 3 Flow Control Terminology Douglas G. MacMynowski* California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California and David R. Williams† Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Illinois I. Introduction Active flow control (AFC) is a multidisciplinary field involving the integration of fluid mechanics with control in particular, and also with actuation and sensing technology. This integration of different communities leads to the potential for communication difficulties. In particular, many fluid dynamics researchers may not be familiar with the terminology used by researchers in control.

Dynamic Vortex Perturbations Williamson et al. (1998) identified three distinct instability length scales trailing a wing in a towing tank studies: a small-scale “braid wake” that scales with the thickness of the two shear layers separating from the upper and lower surfaces of the wing trailing edge; a short-wave instability that scales with the primary vortex core dimensions; and a long-wave instability far downstream representing the classical “Crow” instability (Crow, 1970), scaling with the distance between the two primary vortices.
