P.A. Polivanov╣, A.A. Sidorenko╣; ╣ITAM SB RAS, Russia

The effect of plasma actuators on Shock Wave/Laminar Boundary Layer Interaction was studied experimentally on transonic laminar aerofoil. Successful suppression of separated flow and laminar transonic buffet by plasma actuators was demonstrated. High efficiency ratio of the separation control by plasma actuators was achieved in the experiments.
