Abstract:

The results are presented of experimental investigations of the effect of vortex generators on the aerodynamic characteristics of streamlined bodies. Qualitative results are obtained corrobating the possibility of stabilizing the intact flow over a wing at large angles of attack. The results of an experiment on the flow over bodies of revolution with vortex generators are presented. EDC
