Numerical simulations of active flow control have been carried out for the flow around the NACA0018 profile for Mach = 0.15, Re = 2× 106, a = 15o using the Unsteady Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (URANS) equations. Two types of flow control, zero-net-mass jets (synthetic jets) and continuously blowing jets, have been considered to delay the onset of separation. The synthetic jets have been applied to the 2D situation, i.e. infinitely long slits in the spanwise, for which the angle between the jet and surface normal has been varied to study the effect on the separation. For the continuously blowing jets the effect of 3D mixing is taken into account and an optimization of several jet parameters has been carried out to obtain the best result possible.
