N2 - <p>In this work a 2D CFD solver has been used <br/> to optimize the shape of a leading edge slat <br/> with a chord length of 30% of the main airfoil <br/> which was 40% thick. The airfoil configuration <br/> was subsequently tested in a wind tunnel <br/> and compared to numerical predictions. The <br/> multi-element airfoil was predicted to achieve a <br/> C<sub>l−max</sub> of 3.1 based on the main airfoil chord <br/> length, which was confirmed in the wind tunnel <br/> campaign. Using wake rake traversal and <br/> wool tuft flow visualization wall interference effects <br/> were investigated, which were found to <br/> be a source of considerable uncertainty when <br/> measuring on thick airfoils.</p>
