Abstract:

This study involved the use of a moving wall for boundary layer control on submarine control surfaces. A rotating cylinder was applied at the leading edge, the trailing edge and at the body-flap junction of a control surface. Both analytical and experimental studies indicate that the maximum lift coefficient can be significantly increased in each of the three applications investigated.
