Subjectleading-edge vortex; vortex breakdown
AbstractA critical assessment of more than thirty test cases on leading-edge vortex breakdown has been conducted. The test cases contain test data obtained on more than eighty wing configurations at high angles of attack and static model conditions. Special attention has been paid to related test conditions, such as model geometry, model blockage, model deformation under aerodynamic loads, wind tunnel wall and model support interference, the methodologies used in the experiments and the definition of vortex breakdown location. A screening process has been performed to help identify the relative merits of the various data sets and to extract reasonable confidence and quantitative information from the scattered database. This synthesized information is helpful to assess and validate numerical results.
