Abstract:

A joint theoretical and experimental program on the unsteady aerodynamics associated with active vortex flaps employed on delta wings was conducted. Flow visualizations were performed along with quantitative flow field measurements via particle tracking techniques, for a range of dynamic conditions. Additionally, a theoretical point vortex approach was employed to study the vortex dynamics and resultant unsteady loads.
