Abstract:

Selected results from an extensive oscillating-airfoil experiment are analyzed and reviewed. Four distinct regimes of viscous-inviscid interaction are identified, corresponding to varying degrees of unsteady flow separation. The dominant fluid dynamic phenomena are described for each regime. Ten specific test cases, including the appropriate flow conditions and experimental results, are proposed for evaluating unsteady viscous theories and computational methods. Author
