Transition Flight Experiments on a Swept Wing with Suction

Abstract

Flight boundary-layer transition experiments were conducted on a 30 degree swept wing with a perforated leading-edge suction panel. The transition location on the panel wm changed by systematically varying the location and amount of suction. Transition from laminar to turbulent flow was due to leading-edge turbulence contamination or crossflow disturbance… (More)
