Abstract

We have discussed the force contours produced during dielectric barrier discharge on a plasma actuator. There is asymmetry in the direction and magnitude of forces during cathode directed and anode directed discharges. This can be attributed to the difference in the dielectric charging characteristics during positive and negative pulses. Accurate modeling of surface processes on the dielectric is essential to understanding the working of the actuator.
