Keywords: high-lift systems, multi-element airfoils, lift-enhancing tabs, sst k-w turbulence model, multi-block structured grids
The 2D steady Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations together with the SA turbulence model were applied for numerical simulations of the flow over multi-element airfoil with and without tab near the trailing edge of the main-element to investigate the influence of tabs on the flow.
