WIND-TUNNEL TEST ON LEADING-EDGE VORTEX OF LOW-ASPECT-RATIO FLAPPING PLATES

J.-S. Han╣, C. Breitsamter╣; ╣Technical University of Munich, Germany

We introduce the wind tunnel tests for low-aspect-ratio flapping plates. A three-rotational-axis robotic arm, a high sensitive 6-axis force/torque transducer machine shop-made, and model flat plates with several different aspect ratios, which should have an appropriate rigidity and a lightweight for the lowest inertia, are presented. Deformation tests for the model plates follow.
