Abstract

Presented work is the next step after several experimental examinations of vortex generator influence on a flow separation occurring on a model of the NACA 63A421 airfoil with deflected simple flap. In this stage of research the vortices produced by vortex generators (VGs) were studied using Particle Image Velocimetry technique (PIV) and numerical simulations. Vane type VGs with two spacings among VGs pairs in straight channel with turbulent flow were tested. The average velocity flow field, peak of vorticity and circulation decay downstream of VGs were evaluated. (© 2012 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
