Abstract : Experiments were conducted in low-speed wind tunnel to investigate the aerodynamic characteristics of an airfoil with a jet flap deflected at ninety degrees, in and out of ground effect. These tests consisted of detailed static pressure measurements on the airfoil, and helium bubble flow visualization studies of the resulting flow patterns. Substantial agreement was obtained with previous experiments conducted in England. (Modified author abstract)
