Abstract

The pressure sensitive paint (PSP) and particle image velocimetry (PIV) techniques are applied to the flow around a delta wing. These investigations are a contribution to the International Vortex Flow Experiment 2 (VFE-2). The delta wing is equipped with rounded as well as with sharp leading edges. To demonstrate the advantages of a combined application of PSP and PIV for flow investigation the results of a specific case are discussed, where an inner and outer primary vortex above the delta wing with rounded leading edges develop.
