Laminar Separation Bubble: Its Structure, Dynamics and Control
Report, 2011

Due to the importance of drag reduction in various air and ground vehicles, gas turbines, etc., and since presence of separation bubbles play the key role in this context, the main aim of this review work is to uncover the major research activities on different aspects of laminar separation bubble (LSB) which have been carried out theoretically and experimentally for past few decades. These research studies are majorly concentrated on: structure, characteristics and dynamics of LSB; instability of LSB; and most important issue of controlling LSB passively and actively.
