Wall Turbulence Control: Beyond the Canonical Smooth Wall Case
Closing Date: 31 May 2019
The project aims at filling a critical knowledge gap in the area of wall turbulence control, by investigating for the first time, using both theory and experiments, how a rough wall turbulent boundary layer responds to perturbations such as wall suction and blowing.
The project will generate new knowledge required to ascertain whether or not turbulent flows over rough surfaces can be controlled/managed to achieve some desirable outcomes, such as reducing the drag of a roughened bluff body (e.g. a ship whose hull is roughened by fouling). The project's outcomes, enhanced understanding of wall turbulence control, will lead to significant benefits, such improved control technologies and better prediction/description of wall turbulence. The applicant is expected to:
- Set up and run the experiments using hot-wire anemometry
- Process/Analyse the data and prepare draft papers for publication
