Sammanfattning : This thesis is motivated by the application of active flow control on the cabin of trucks, thereby providing a new means of drag reduction. Particularly, the work presented strives to identify how plasma actuators can be used to reduce the drag caused by the detachment of the flow around the A-pillars. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis considers the aerodynamics of trucks. The work focuses on the aerodynamic drag caused by the wake. Bluff-body flows are dominated by large dissipative vortex-shedding wakes with a low mean pressure compared to the high pressure on their frontal area. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The work performed in this thesis explores new ways of reducing the drag of ground vehicles. Specifically, the effect of plasma actuators are investigated numerically with the intention to delay separation around a half-cylinder, a geometry chosen to represent a simplified A-pillar of a truck.

Sammanfattning : Passenger vehicles are associated with travel flexibility, today it is clear that this flexibility impacts the environment. Passenger vehicles account for more than one-tenth of all greenhouse gasses in Europe with approximately a quarter of the vehicle's energy consumption wasted as aerodynamic drag. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the use of multiple redundant control surfaces to increase performance during flight. There is no clear-cut definition of performance. It may differ between applications, but here, the amount of drag for a given flight condition is used. LÄS MER
