Abstract:

The vortex flow patterns over thin delta wings were photographed during experiments in a vertical water tunnel making use of appropriate flow visualisation techniques. The flow geometry for these wings was also calculated using the VORSBA vortex flow computer program. A comparison is made between the calculated and experimental results and discrepancies between them are discussed. Keywords Australia, Computations, Potential flow, Incompressible inviscid vortex flow.
