Forcing three-dimensional large-scale flow asymmetries in the wake of blunt body : wake equilibrium and drag reduction

Abstract : We experimentally study the effect of high-frequency fluidic forcing on various asymmetric turbulent wakes behind a blunt body at ReH = 5 .105 . Different wake asymmetries are obtained by the use of passive perturbations around the body modifying the wake equilibrium. High-frequency forcing of the wake along the rear edges is then applied to increase the base pressure. Depending on the initial unforced wake vertical equilibrium, localized forcing along the top or bottom edges may strongly increase or decrease the base pressure. The efficiency of spatially localized forcing and the fluidic boat-tailing thus created is linked to the global wake equilibrium and its modification
