- Flight or maneuvering at high angle of attack is one of the most important parts for the modern fighters. When the angle of attack is within the usual range, the aerodynamic characteristics have a linear relationship with the dynamic of aircraft. With the increase of angle of attack, the airflow separation developed and nonlinear traits of the aerodynamic force and moment occur. Vortex can be generated in front of the nose of the aircraft or leading edge of the wing. Furthermore, the change and break down of the vortices are the main cause for the aerodynamic characteristics at high angle of attack. Study on the structure of the flow field and traits of the vortices at high angle of attack are of great significance to understand the fighter's performance. Through water tunnel experiment, staining flow visualization techniques are used to observe the generation and development of vortex on delta wing. At the same time, for the purpose of studying the effect of sideslip angle, experiments are carried on by adjusting the sideslip angle. It confirms the sideslip makes the flow pattern asymmetrical and the vortex break up at smaller angle of attack.
