Vorticity Dynamics of Leading-Edge Vortex Formation on a Revolving Wing

Vorticity Dynamics of Leading-Edge Vortex Formation on a Revolving Wing

A leading-edge vortex (LEV) forms and remains stably attached on high angle-of-attack (AoA), low aspect ratio (AR) wings undergoing revolving or flapping motion at an insect’s wing. Here, the LEV formation on a revolving wing is investigated. The 'Shake-the-box' (STB) Lagrangian particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) system and a volumetric patching process helped reconstruct the entire time-resolved flow field.
