Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) results and modelling approaches, considering transitional flow around an aircraft wing with a combined hybrid laminar flow control and variable camber system are presented in this contribution. The goal of the combination is an increase in aerodynamic efficiency, which is reflected by the CFD results using correlation based transition turbulence models.
