An experimental study was conducted to compare performance and efficiency between fluidic oscillators and steady jets with respect to numerous well established flow control coefficients (e.g., momentum, mass flow, energy, etc.) in support of the development of active flow control technology. Different actuation modules were tested on an existing model of the NASA hump geometry. Time-averaged pressure measurements were conducted with high spatial resolution along both the chord and span of the model. Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry is performed downstream of the actuation location to investigate the performance differences in more detail. Fluidic oscillators are superior to steady jets with respect to any flow control coefficient at a given spacing. This superiority is due to the existence of more coherent streamwise vortices for fluidic oscillators in comparison to steady jets.
