I am new here, and I am currently creating a wing as part of a final year project in university. My project relates to boundary layer control, and one part of my project is to evenly distribute air through these holes to distrupt the boundary layer.

My project is loosely associated with Mc Larens F-duct, which uses blown air to alter the B.L. over the wing.

I am using an NACA profile (23012) built in parts by a rapid prototype stacked paper machine. At about 3/4 lengthways along the chord, a cylindrical cut will be made, along which, on the underside of the wing, will be a series of holes.

My problem is, how am I going to evenly distribute this air through these holes. Also, how many would be needed to distrupt it successfully?

Thanks for any help guys, it is much appreciated.
