Abstract : This report documents the characteristics and location of the wakes for two generic lifting surface planforms. The geometric description locates these wakes as they develop downstream from a low aspect-ratio delta wing and a bent-plate wing. The wakes are graphically depicted at several streamwise locations downstream of these wings with accompanying cross-velocity vector plots to assist in interpreting them. The data used to determine these wake characteristics was obtained by surveying the wings' flow field with a seven-hole pressure probe. (Author)
