Calculations of the Flow over Thick, Conical, Slender Wings with Leading-Edge Separation


The vortex-sheet model of leading-edge separation previously applied to flat-plate delta wings has been applied to thick delta wings in the form of rhombic cones. The simplifications introduced by the use of slender-body theory and an asymptotic treatment for the core of the vortex have been retained. The results show that the vortex sheet leaves the wing… (More)
