Control of Stall

Maneuvering fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcraft experience stall, a dangerous situation where the flow separates from the surface of the wing or blade and causes unanticipated loss of lift and increased drag. Our research is exploring the manner in which one could prevent stall by using small carefully tailored inputs with Nano-Second Pulsed Dielectric Barrier (NSDBD) actuators.
