Fluidic Oscillator in FieldView

This animation depicts Mach contours from an implicit large-eddy simulation of a fluidic oscillator, which is an active flow control device with demonstrated effectiveness at flight-scale Reynolds numbers. The simulation was run on the NASA Pleiades cluster using the NASA OVERFLOW solver.
