Arrays of microslats operating within the boundary layer of an aircraft wing or other surfaces are provided. The arrays consist of rows of microslats, staggered between rows, and shaped so that the trailing edge of the microslat is normal or perpendicular to the direction of expected reverse flow on the surface. For flow regions having directionally stable flow, the microslats are rectangular. Where the direction of the expected reverse flow is variable, the trailing edge of the microslats is triangular, thereby accepting an angular range of reverse flow...
[ What is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent of the United States is:] [1.] A localized, self-actuated and directionally oriented flow control system comprising:a grouped array of contiguous microslats for attachment to an aerodynamic surface forming a plurality of rows;a plurality of hinges mounted in said array; anda plurality of said contiguous microslats mounted on said hinges.
