Abstract
Flow control is a growing field of research with many potential applications in both commercial and military use. Many studies have demonstrated the ability of both passive and active flow mechanisms to alter the fluid flow behavior and yield desirable results. The use of passive mechanisms often creates additional drag, so active mechanisms are favorable for certain applications. However, for active mechanisms to be efficient, they must be easily implemented, use a low amount of input energy, and provide the required level of actuation. One such flow control device is the synthetic jet.
