Abstract

Detailed measurements of pressure and velocity characteristics are reported for the flow on and downstream of a trailing flap, whose 16 degree angle of incidence resulted in boundary layer separation, a small region of recirculating flow, and a curved downstream wake. Emphasis is placed on the region of recirculating flow and on the downstream wake. The characteristics are compared to those of a similar flow but with a larger region of recirculation reported by Thompson and Whitelaw (1985). The relative importance of the terms in the transport equations for mean momentum and turbulence energy are quantified and the implication of the results for viscous inviscid interaction methods and turbulence modelling are discussed.
