Designing A Control System to Adjust Surface Roughness of an Airfoil
This research focused on investigating flow control using surface roughness along the leading edge of an airfoil. The current design will entail a system that can accurately predict flow separation on the upper surface. This is done by measuring the angle of attack and static pressure to determine flow separation. For future research this can be integrated with the surface roughness devices to prevent the flow separation.
