Abstract:

A horseshoe root vortex secondary flow forms at the junction of a flat plate and an appendage, creating a three-dimensional, separated flow. Flow visualizations and pressure measurements were made for two appendage shapes at zero angle of attack with a turbulent incoming boundary layer. The entire data base for this flow is presented in this report. The velocity data are presented graphically as boundary-layer traverses, and in tabular form. These data are intended for researchers interested in the specific details of the flow or as a test case for numerical modeling.
