The AFLoNext partners organised project-dedicated sessions during the CEAS conference. Two sessions were held on Wednesday 18 October 2017 and were dedicated to the AFLoNext WP2 “Active Flow Control On Airframe”. The third session was held on Thursday 19 October 2017 and was dedicated to the AFLoNext WP5 “Multifunctional Trailing Edge Concepts”.

AFLoNext WP2 targets local flow separation control at local areas of the wing to improve the low-speed performance. The first area addressed is the wing/pylon/engine junction, where the interruption of the leading edge high-lift device causes an early flow separation limiting the wing performance that is even more pronounced as engine diameters grow for the sake of fuel reduction. The second area is the wing tip region, as the implementation of more sophisticated wing tip shapes prevent the inclusion of a high-lift system.
AFLoNext WP5 addresses flow control in the cruise regime for stabilizing the shock-boundary layer interaction for buffet control.
