ABSTRACT
The current work focusses on the spatio-temporal evolution of large scale coherent structures in the turbulent boundary layer ora plane channel both with and without microtile-based EMHD control. The heuristic concept behind the microtile designs that we have simulated apparently does not yield a successful drag reduction strategy (for the open-loop case [1]). In this work we investigate the flow response when the Lorentz force is applied with feedback conditioned on the advection of large-scale flow structures (e.g. hairpin vortices). We performed a long-time simulation conditioned on the passage of strong ejection events but obtained no reduction in skin friction. Based on short-time simulations we found that the near-wall flow structures undergo merely a spatial phase-shift when advecting above a single Lorentz force actuator: the structures are simply decelerated or accelerated with little change in their appearance, based on flow visualization. During this interaction of the applied Lorentz force with the flow, the Reynolds stress is unchanged.
