	%X An active slat is developed to increase the lift and delay
the separation for a DU96-W180 airfoil. The active slat is a fixed slat
that can be closed, fully opened or intermittently opened by a rotating
vane depending on the need. Experimental results show that the active
slat has reduced the mean pressure and increased the mean velocity
on the suction side of the airfoil for all positive angles of attack,
indicating an increase of lift. The experimental data and numerical
simulations also show that the direction of actuator vane rotation can
influence the mixing of the flow streams on the suction side and
hence influence the aerodynamic performance.
