Abstract

A series of flow visualization tests of a uniformly pitching, 60° sweep delta wing have been performed. Measurements of vortex position over the wing and vortex breakdown are then presented. For the pitch up case, the vortex forms further outboard and closer to the wing surface than in the steady case, and vortex breakdown occurs at higher incidence. Vortex breakdown is preceded by a distortion of the vortex core. The pitch down case is characterized by the restoration of the vortex, the main effect being that a broken down flow is observed at lower incidence than the static case.
