Keywords: aerodynamics, vortex flow control, wind tunnel testing
The manipulation of characteristic vortex flow instabilities, which occur in the flow around delta wings, is of great interest aiming at an increase in performance of such configurations. This interference is realized by periodic oscillations of sectional active flap elements as well as by pulsed blowing along the leading edge.
