The proposed studies will relate to a low Reynolds laminar flow of a two-dimensional mixture layer of a highly viscous dielectric fluid. The fluid / fluid interface will be studied experimentally under different conditions. This subject is part of action 5.1 of the INTERACTIVES labex, action which concerns the manipulation of internal flow by electrical discharge and charge injection.
We propose to numerically derive closed-loop control strategies of different flows. We will treat the numerical simulation aspects of physical mechanisms (electrodynamics and fluid mechanics) and the development of innovative control strategies (Data Driven approaches based on machine learning methods). We will study two rather emblematic types of flows: - The flow behind an obstacle (cylinder, wing profile, backward facing step). This type of strongly separated flow is particularly interesting in cases where the objective of the control is to increase aircraft stealth.
