Daniel N Miller, Neal D Domel, Cole W Schemm: Exhaust plume heat effect reducing method and apparatus. Lockheed Martin Corporation, Reising Ethington P C, John J Snyder, November 27, 2012: US08316631 (2 worldwide citation)

An apparatus for reducing heating effects of an exhaust plume of a jet engine on an impinged surface includes fluid injectors disposed adjacent and aimed into an exhaust plume zone that's to be occupied by an exhaust plume when the engine is running. A flow generator transmits fluid flow into such a ...

Neal D Domel, Dan J Baruzzini, Daniel N Miller: Passive robust flow control micro device. Lockheed Martin Corporation, Bracewell & Giuliani, March 26, 2013: US08403271 (1 worldwide citation)

A tapered micro-plow, or a series of tapered micro-plows, are submerged in a boundary layer just upstream of a reflection point of an oblique shock. Each micro-plow develops a beneficial pair of vortices which redistribute high energy flow within the boundary layer such that flow separation is preve ...

Dan J Baruzzini, Daniel N Miller, Neal D Domel, Jeff G Hakes: Suprression of shock-induced airflow separation. Lockheed Martin Corporation, Reising Ethington P C, August 21, 2018: US10054048

An apparatus for suppressing shock-induced separation of high speed airflow from a relatively low-energy boundary layer. The apparatus may include an actuator or array of actuators configured to alternately inhale and exhale fluid and positioned to alternately inhale fluid from and exhale fluid into ...

Brett W Denner, Neal D Domel: Rotor blade having passive bleed path. Lockheed Martin Corporation, December 1, 2011: US20110293421-A1

A rotor blade includes a bleed path opening to a suction surface, extending through the blade, exiting to at least one of the suction or a trailing surface, and through which working fluid flows under centrifugal pumping forces when the blade rotates, to passively bleed working fluid from the suctio ...
