Effective and reliable flow control to reduce turbulent
skin-friction drag is of paramount importance in many engineering applications, including aerospace engineering, where the skin-friction component is approximately one quarter of the total aircraft drag in flight condition. In this project a numerical analysis of a three dimensional turbulence flow control around airfoil will be studied.
