Keywords: pressure measurements, wing, dynamic control, turbulent flow, smooth flow
Transient pressures occurring at different chordwise locations were compared with the transient lift generated by a NACA2313 wing subjected to smooth and turbulent flows. Pressures close to the leading-edge correlated well with lift fluctuations and the presence of a linear relationship between local pressure and integrated lift was also identified.
