  author={Michael J. Belisle and Tyler P. Neale and Helen L. Reed and William S. Saric},
This paper addresses the conceptual design of a flight-test experiment incorporating a laminar flow control (LFC) wing glove on a business-jet-type aircraft. These experiments are designed to extend the spanwise periodic discrete roughness element (DRE) technology to chord Reynolds numbers between 15-20 million at a unit Reynolds number of 1.6 million per foot. A number of key questions were addressed and it is shown that: (1) it is possible to find an aircraft that can be used as a platform… CONTINUE READING
