Active flow control (AFC) devices have been proven to reduce drag and delay stall on commercial aircraft. This leads to lower fuel usage and thus reduced flight costs. However, there is a large uncertainty as to how to integrate AFCs into aircraft, specifically those with composite structures. Additionally, the cost of manufacturing AFCs for large scale production has not been previously studied.
