Influence of Strake Wing on Unsteady Characteristics of an Aircraft Undergoing Lateral Motions

In this paper, the influences of strake wing on unsteady characteristics of aircraft at high angle of attack during rolling oscillation, yawing oscillation, and coupled motion at different frequencies is investigated by using a forced oscillation test rig. The experiments include dynamic force and flow field measurements. As the results show, the rolling moments are affected by the vortices generated by the strake wing. The rolling moment is large and shows strong hysteresis both in the rolling and yawing oscillations. The value of the rolling moment coefficient is small in the coupled motion. The change of the rolling moment is related to the unsteady development of the strake vortices. The characteristics are almost the same for the yawing moment, which may mainly be affected by the sideslip angle. This paper is for the aerodynamic configuration design and the flight control design using flow control method.
