Paper Abstract

The Boeing Active Flow Control (AFC) System is a DARPA sponsored program to develop AFC technology to achieve a significant increase in payload and/or range for rotorcraft applications such as the V-22 tiltrotor vehicle. The program includes Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis, 0.1 scale wind tunnel and 3D testing and development of smart material based AFC actuators. This paper will provide an overview of the program, concentrating on the development and testing of the AFC actuators, and is an update of references to 1 to 3.
