Abstract

The attenuation of perturbations in both periodic and non-periodic channel flow is attempted through wall-normal transcription and point wall-shear-stress measurements. The transcription is applied in both continuous harmonic form and a system based on discrete zero-net-mass-flux panel-pair form. For 2D flow it is demonstrated by means of a spectral Galerkin solver, that a simple classical controller with harmonic transpiration is capable of attenuating highly non-linear 2D perturbations. A multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO) robust control scheme designed for the attenuation of perturbations in a non-periodic channel is applied to linear perturbations in the periodic setting. A certain set of linearly unstable modes in this periodic setting prove unstable for this control scheme. The significance of the last panel-pair in the scheme's failure in the presence of such modes is also demonstrated to continue to attenuate simple 2D perturbations in the presence of certain prescribed actuator/sensor faults. The identification of which faults are detrimental to the control demonstrates the importance of upstream actuators and downstream sensors respectively. Such observations may be useful in the design of fault tolerant control schemes. An ad-hoc extension of the 2D MIMO controller is applied to a 3D flow. A simple perturbation is initialised in the flow by an upstream panel pair
