Paper Title:
Computational Investigation of the Slat Blowing Control for High-Lift Airfoil
  Abstract

Based on the characteristics of blowing control, a new technique was put forward to weaken slat cove separation and reduce noise. The effect of the slat blowing control on lift performance, the flow field and noise with a three-element high lift aerofoil was investigated by using the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code of Fluent and the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations. The blowing apertures were set on the lower surface of the slat. By using the slat blowing technique, the slat cove separation can be controlled efficiently and the lift coefficient increased. The aerodynamic performance varies with different blowing flow rates and angles of attack.
