Synthetic jet actuation of load control of wings is investigated experimentally and numerically. Wind-tunnel investigation included HWA measurement of periodic flow from the jet, and surface pressure measurements for F+ = O(1). The URANS numerical results reveal details of interaction of the jet with the flow around the trailing edge.
