An Overview of Scientific and Technical Literature on Coanda Effect Applied to Nozzles 2011-01-2591
In 1911 the first fundamental patent of Henry Coanda has been submitted. And 2011 is the centenary of this event for aeronautic history. This paper presents a general review of applied research about Coanda effect nozzles, starting from earlier Coanda works to today's applications. Coanda effect based nozzles are considered, looking at the nozzles which can produce an effective angular deflection of a jet and in particular of a synthetic jet produced by two or more jets.
