Topics of research
Study on the fundamental flow characteristics of synthetic jets
The Influence of an Obstacle on the Flow Characteristics of Axial-flow Fans
Control of Flow Instabilities in Swirl Flow Generator
Study on flow around a Circulation Control Wing
The system environments of the fluid machines are various. Fans, blowers, compressors, pumps and turbines are often used under unsuitable operating condition. This laboratory attempts to clarify the mechanisms of the flow instabilities induced in the fluid machines under such conditions, investigates the onset conditions including the cell number and develops techniques to control the flow instabilities by means of the circulation control wings and the synthetic jets.
