	%X Wall-surface jet induced by the dielectric barrier
discharge (DBD) has been proposed as an actuator for active flow
control in aerodynamic applications. Discharge plasma evolution of
the DBD plasma actuator was simulated based on a simple fluid model,
in which the electron, one type of positive ion and negative ion were
taken into account. Two-dimensional simulation was conducted, and
the results are in agreement with the insights obtained from
experimental studies. The simulation results indicate that the discharge
mode changes depending on applied voltage slope; when the applied
voltage is positive-going with high applied voltage slope, the
corona-type discharge mode turns into the streamer-type discharge
mode and the threshold voltage slope is around 300 kV/ms in this
simulation. The characteristics of the electrohydrodynamic (EHD)
force, which is the source of the wall-surface jet, also change
depending on the discharge mode; the tentative peak value of the EHD
force during the positive-going voltage phase is saturated by the
periodical formation of the streamer-type discharge.
