Paper Title:
Experimental and Computational Studies of Twin-Vertical-Tail Buffet
  Abstract

Characteristics and mechanism of twin-vertical-tail buffet response on airplane configuration with wing root leading edge extension (LEX) were studied by both experiment and computation. Low-speed wind tunnel experiments were carried out to measure the root bending moment and tip acceleration of vertical tail. Vortical flow patterns were visualized via laser light sheet technique. Three-dimensional computation was performed to solve the unsteady Euler equations on rigid model. The results indicate that (1) bursting of vortices emanating from LEX is the main source of twin-vertical-tail buffet; (2) the Euler equations is able to predict the general characteristics of vertical-tail buffet response reasonably.
