Abstract

Previous studies have reported a novel flow-control technology referred to as the Sprayed Liquid Flap. These previous studies conducted two-dimensional, parametric studies involving the position and strength of an atomized liquid jet emanating from the lower surface of an NACA 0012. The results suggested that the Sprayed Liquid Flap could improve aerodynamic performance in certain conditions. This works aims to expand on these previous studies by investigating the effects of three-dimensional aerodynamics on the Sprayed Liquid Flap using Computational Fluid Dynamics. An attempt is also made to correct two-dimensional Sprayed Liquid Flap aerodynamics for finite wing effects using Lifting Line Theory. The objective of these studies is to understand the effects of finite wing aerodynamics on the Sprayed Liquid Flap and assess the feasibility of its deployment in real-world applications.
