Abstract

The evolution of streamwise counter-rotating vortices induced by different leading edge patterns is investigated quantitatively using hot-wire anemometer. A notched and triangular leading edge with the same wavelength and amplitude were designed to induce streamwise vortices over a flat plate at Reynolds number (based on the wavelength of the leading edge patterns) of 3080 corresponding to free-stream velocity of 3 m/s. The streamwise velocity at different streamwise locations collected and analyzed using a single wire probe hot-wire anemometer showed reveal different characteristics of boundary layer flow due to the presence of these two leading edge patterns. The major difference is the appearance of an additional streamwise vortex between the troughs of the notched pattern. Such vortices increase the mixing effect in the boundary layer as well as the velocity profile.
