Muir, Rowan Eveline. (2017). PIV images of flow over a swift shaped wing: Dataset 1, [image]. University of Edinburgh. School of Engineering. Institute of Energy Systems. http://dx.doi.org/10.7488/ds/1717.
Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV) images of fluid flowing over a swift shaped model wing. The images are unprocessed, however a calibration file is also provided for each set. Post processing is required, most easily done using LaVision's DaVis software as the IM7 format is specific to that software. However JPIV software can also read IM7 and is available free of charge at http://www.jpiv.vennemann-online.de/ .
A leading-edge vortex system of dual vortices can be seen forming over the suction side of the wing (which is facing the bottom of the tank.)
The wing is a rigid model, with a sweep angle of 50 degrees and a sharp leading edge.
The wing is tested at a range of Reynolds numbers (Re) and angles of attack. The data is organised as such:
* First into Reynolds number (either 15,800 or 65,500) and then
* At 4 different angles of attack (0, 5, 10, and 15 degrees) at each Re.
The details of the wing design and experimentation are provided in Muir RE et al.
