Abstract

This paper presents a two-dimensional numerical study on the interaction of synthetic jet and the cross flow inside a microchannel. Three different turbulence models namely the standard k-ω, Shear Stress Transport (SST) and Scale Adaptive Simulation Shear Stress Transport (SAS SST) were tested for their ability to predict the flow structure generated by a synthetic jet. The results are validated against existing experimental data. The SAS SST model was found to give the most realistic prediction of the fluid flow based on the good agreement with experimental data.
