The effect of passive bleeding on flow structure of a 45 deg swept delta wing is studied in a low-speed wind tunnel using techniques of laser-illuminated smoke visualization, surface-pressure measurements, and particle image velocimetry. Three different bleeding configurations are tested to identify the effectiveness of the control technique compared to a base planform for a broad range of attack angles 6 <= alpha <= 6deg at Reynolds numbers Re=3.5x10(4) and Re=10(5). The results indicate that all bleeding configurations alter the flowfield over the planform, where a proper bleeding induces significant improvement on the overall flow pattern. At sufficiently high angle of attack where pronounced surface separation appears on the base planform, the recovery of the vortical structures with significant increases in the magnitude of suction pressure coefficient -C-p, which implies the elimination of three-dimensional surface separation, is achieved with the corresponding bleeding configuration. On the contrary, at low attack angles, the bleeding causes reduction in the magnitudes of suction pressure coefficient -C-p in general, indicating a loss in suction performance of the planform. To conclude, the results confirm that the bleeding might effectively be used to eliminate the surface separation on nonslender delta wing.

The effect of unsteady blowing through the leading edge on the flow structure over a 45 deg swept delta wing in relation to the steady blowing is experimentally studied in a low-speed wind tunnel using the techniques of surface-pressure measurements, particle image velocimetry, and laser-illuminated smoke visualization. The unsteady blowing in the form of a periodic square pattern at 25% duty cycle is provided at the excitation frequencies varying from 2 to 24 Hz for a fixed momentum coefficient. The flow s...

The effect of thickness-to-chord (t/C) ratio on aerodynamics of a non-slender delta wing with sweep angle of 45 degree is characterized in a low-speed wind tunnel using laser illuminated smoke visualization, surface pressure measurements, particle image velocimetry, and force measurements. The delta wings of t/C ratios varying from 2% to 15% with 45 degree windward beveled leading edges are tested. The results indicate that the effect of t/C ratio on flow structure is quite substantial. Considering the low ...

The effect of thickness-to-chord (t/C) ratio on flow structure of a delta wing with sweep angle of 35 deg is characterized in a low-speed wind tunnel using laser-illuminated smoke visualization, particle image velocimetry, and surface pressure measurements. Four different t/C ratios varying from 4.75 to 19% are tested at angles of attack, 4, 6, 8, and 10 deg, for Reynolds numbers Re =1 x 10(4) and 3.5 x 10(4). The results indicate that the effect of thicknessto-chord ratio on flow structure is quite substan...
