  1. 1. Drag reduction using plasma actuators

    Författare :Romain Futrzynski; Gunilla Efraimsson; P. Henrik Alfredsson; Charles Mockett; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flow control; drag reduction; plasma actuator; DMD; LES; optimization; pulsating flow; strömningskontroll; motståndsminskning; plasma ställdon; DMD; LES; optimering; pulserande flöde; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    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 : Transition delay in boundary-layer flows is achieved via reactive control of flow instabilities, i.e. Tollmien-Schlichting (TS) waves. Adaptive and model-based control techniques are investigated by means of direct numerical simulations (DNS) and experiments. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Polymer Actuators for Micro Robotic Applications

    Författare :Erik Edqvist; Stefan Johansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Micro actuator; PVDF-TrFE; I-SWARM; Multilayer actuator; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis a multilayer actuator structure is developed for the I-SWARM project. In order to build an energy efficient and low voltage actuator system for the 3x3x3 mm3 robot, the resonance drive mode in combination with a ten layer multilayer structure build upon the most suitable substrate material was used.
