We present in this paper an experimental and numerical study about the Coanda effect which causes the sudden reattachment of a jet to an inclined plane. This phenomenon induces a large hysteresis loop, which can be used to reduce the noise produced by an airflow crossing two diaphragms in tandem inside a duct. The angle of the inclined wall with horizontal plane and the flow velocity are the two main parameters studied here. With the aim of doing optimal control, we propose to construct for this flow configuration a low-dimensional dynamical system with a basis issued from a Proper Orthogonal Decomposition.
