Jet and Vortex Actuator (JaVA) is a zero-net-mass flux device for active flow control of boundary layers and transition. JaVA produces various jets which can be used to delay flow separation or to “steer” the boundary layer velocity profile. In this study, numerical simulations of JaVA-boundary layer interactions are analyzed using Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD). JaVA-induced flow regimes are governed by the plate width (b ), the amplitude (a ) and the operating frequency (f ). In this study the frequency is changed between 2/3 Hz and 8/3 Hz keeping the plate width and the amplitude constant. A commercial finite-volume-based unsteady, laminar, incompressible Navier-Stokes solver has been used to study the flow fields generated by JaVA. Then, POD is applied to time dependent snapshots of velocity fields at each operating frequency. The POD modes revealed the behavior of the flat plate boundary layer under the effect of active flow control. Traveling modes can be captured in the successive modes for high frequencies.
