This paper investigates an ultrasonically driven bistable fluidic diverter at inlet nozzle Mach numbers of up to Mn = 0.3 and operating pressure ratios of up to Pr = 1.1. Part I examines the switching characteristics with respect to nondimensional parameters of excitation amplitude, frequency, required energy, switching time and inlet total pressure. It is shown that to promote switching at turbulent jet Mach numbers of up to Mn = 0.3 it is necessary to excite a jet preferred mode of St = 0.45 which differs from previously reported laminar jet operation of the similar device. For the reference case the switching time amounts to 1.2 ms suggesting oscillation frequencies of up to 500 Hz. Part II is a combined experimental and numerical study that examines the triggered instability modes in the free shear layer using large eddy simulations (LES) and visualizes the flow field using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV).
