A detailed study of the device angle dependency of a single vortex generator (VG) is presented in this paper. A single Vortex Generator on a test section wall case, with four different positions of the device angle to the incoming flow, has been designed and solved by computational methods. The computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations have been com-pared with a wind tunnel experiment, where the corresponding parametric study was per-formed over a single vane mounted on the test section wall in low-speed wind tunnel. In this experiment the flow was recorded using Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (S-PIV) in cross-planes at various positions downstream of the vane.
The main goal of this article is to study the angle dependency of a single VG mounted on a test section wall; for this purpose CFD simulations have been carried out and compared with a wind tunnel experiment and an analytical model.
